What I like best about LJ is seeing something unique and creative – a true one of a kind. This qualifies. I also realize that this would not have been easy to do, yet the craftsmanship is excellent. Well done.

Hummm… OK – I am figuring the “dots” came out of the top layer, but how were the dots cut with no sign of a centering hole from a hole saw or a circle cutter?

This is a unique well done piece.

Thank you for sharing

Very nice! It had me staring at the screen for some time trying to figure out how you did this. My conclusion is “the hard way” since I can not see an easy one…

Wow! Another fantastic piece. How DID you cut those circles?!? How did you come up with that design? How do you (insert everything related to woodworking)?
