I needed more tops to give away at the show tomorrow so I spit a cherry lot that was ready to go into the wood furnace because it cracked all the way through. I got enough pieces to make 11 tops and found a cracked piece of hard maple burl and made the 12th out of it.
I wanted to try a different design with most of the mass on the outer ring and most of them are turned that way.
I tried all these tops when I made them but the ones with the thick outer ring spin the easiest and the longest.
They are 1 3/4” to 2 3/4” in diameter and finished with clear matte spray.
