This is a paper plate support plate that is made from 4 pieces of ambrosia maple and 5 strips of walnut. I had come across all this ambrosia maple in the off fall pile at school so I selected some of the more vivid pieces and added some walnut to make my 9” diameter needed for this plate. I cut a paper plate in half for a template to turn to. It is 9” by about 3/4 thick. It is finished with Danish Oil and 3 stage buff and wax.

This is used to support the flimsy paper plates when you have something like watermelon on it. Without support they fold up and make a mess.

This is going to my sister for her new place that she just moved into.

Cheers, Jim

That’s really a neat idea, Jim! May have to “borrow” it!

Those paper plates are useless without some support. Looks like you solved that problem Jim! I bet you could just skip the paper plate and just use your woodware plate! I don’t think that’s a word! LOL!

Cool idea Jim. 5 stars. Nice work on the plate pattern. I have to agree, you can just use your plate and forget the paper one.

Very nice Jim,
I love the colour contrast.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thank you all for the nice comments. This is something I’m trying to teach the students about layout for the final look of the piece..planning the centering to balance a pattern. Absolute flatness for joining is another thing I stress for lathe work and their flat work . If they did segmenting, they would find this out in a hurry!! Too bad the classes and the semesters are so short.

Hi Mark, Tony and Dave,
This one would not be very useful by it self because of the 5 signature holes of the beetle. They go clear through and it would leak!! I left them for a little character to the piece.

Hi Candy. She might want more..we’ll see. We have two plain cherry ones and they get a lot of use.

Cheers, Jim

I’m in complete agreement.

(Tony, woodware may not be a word, but I believe woodenware is)

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.

Just in time for the holiday weekend! Just be careful not to drip any hotdog ketchup on those, they are too beautiful
