First try, Tommy? I think you did great! So how did you do it?

is it a cutting board ?
a lazy susan ?
a frisbee ?
a wall hanging ?

i guess only your hair dresser knows for sure (LOL) ?

the main wood is African mahogany the star is just left over scrap wood i think is oak and i don’t know the dark wood. it was suppose to be a saucer. yes it is solid wood started out about 3/4’ thick.
I did it with a lot of trial and error.
