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.

Thanks, Dan.

Very cool looking really like the laminated one. My wife is talking about possibly making some earrings for sale in the fall, may have to think about making one of these as a display option.

The only problem with these is that you haven’t filled them with awesome wooden earrings ;)

I really like the design, they are great.
