I saw a design similar to this somewhere, possibly on LJ and decided it would make a good christmas present for my mum. So I made the first one last year foolishly showing my girlfriend when it was finished. I’m sure many of you know why this was a mistake. For valentines I wanted to do something different, in the end taking inspiration from the many chopping board designs I’ve seen. Many many hours later I had the basic discs glued up and hesitantly started turning. Somehow I had no problems with the laminations a testiment to titebond III.
The first was made from beech discs with what I think is a bubinga spindle and finished in shellac.
The second used purple heart, maple and padauk for the discs with a sycamore spidle and foot.
Hope you like them, all comments welcome.
