It was total leftovers elimination. I used every single useless small piece of scrap every woodworker keep in some box, hoping that there will some purpose turn out of it – I couldn’t think everything smarter.
There are cca 200 pieces in each (I made 2 boards) : oak, beech, walnut,apple, birds eye maple, mahogany. There are all grain directions together.
First I cut all leftovers on tablesaw set on 29mm wide (that will be hight).Than I cut 41mm pieces on bandsaw with bandsaw crosscut jig. The third dimension is different, depend on the tickness of original scrap – that’s why they look chaotic.
After that, I glued stripes with some playwood jig as a holder, with help of cooking paper to prevent glueing and easy pulling out. All stripes sides were cut with tapered jig on tablsaw for better glueing.
Finaly, I used router grooves cutting jig posted on 25AUG2015 to plan the board. I figured that put it on thickness planer would not be good idea and I dont have drum sander.
I cut circle with bandsaw circle jig as well as base plate (20cm) made of beech. I bought hardware (6 inch) on e-bay for 5$.
Finish – three leyers of non glossy laquer. Diameter 37cm.
Sorry for turned photos.

Awesome use of scrap. You’re right, putting that through the thickness planer probably would have been a disaster

Enjoyed seeing how you did the different operations, great to learn from each other. The end result was fabulous. pictures will stay up right when taken vertically if you reduce the pixel count.
