Saw a similar post by fellow Lumberjock “Woodstock” dated back to 2011 . Liked the idea thought I’d give it a try. Made from scrap black walnut and some 3/4 birch plywood. 9.5” x 1.5”.

Sanded to 600 and finished with EEE and OB Shine juice

Thanks for looking

Very beautiful shape and combination of materials. I wonder how you kept that playwood from tear out.

This is a beautiful dish and I love the pattern and craftsmanship. It’s a real eye catcher.

Sharp tools, light touch and high rpm helps with a smooth finish regardless of wood type.
