My first try at using a bowl router bit. I like it.

I used screws to secure the pattern to the wood, then put rare earth magnets in the screwholes after routing. Double sided tape held the workpiece to the bench.

1 more from Santa’s workshop. I hope whoever gets it enjoys it as much as I have.

Maple, mahogany and a little yellowheart. Mohawk Dead Flat lacquer and wipe on poly.

Hairy, this is a nice project until somebody decides to take a bite of it and breaks their teeth. ;-! Seriously though, this is a nice project and nicely done. It will be a great eye catcher and conversation piece. I like it. Congratulations.
