I made a couple of these a while back. One for my girlfriend, and one for her sister. I found the plans online for free. The wood is Leopardwood. Leopardwood is hard, heavy, and splinters like crazy, but it’s beautiful to look at. I finished it with 1 coat of pure Tung Oil, followed by several coats of Waterlox.

I made the same plan but painted mine white. How did you attach the disks to the arms? I used screws and it didn’t feel very sturdy, but I didn’t have any other ideas. Thanks for your help. I love, absolutely love the color even if it does splinter like crazy. Keep up the great work.

Timber_Cruiser,

The disks are attached using stainless steel screws. I don’t remember the screw size, but it seems to be very sturdy.

Thanks for your nice comments about my recent entry.
BTY- Love the leopardwood, I think this is what I would call lacewood if it were used as a veneer.
The large orbital-like flake that makes its character so pronounced I think is also what makes it so “splintery”.
I just finished a shoe cubbie using lacewood for the door inserts.
I’m waiting on the upholstered top before I submit.
