I needed something to do in my woodworking class at the local tech school while glue-ups and finish were drying.
The scrap bin yielded a piece of 5/4 a little over 8” square that was just crying to be turned into something useful.
I trimmed off the corners, glued a sacrificial blank to one face, screwed a face plate to the blank, and mounted it on one of the shop lathes.
This is the result … first thing I have ever turned!
WARNING: Turning is addictive. Engaging in this activity can result in purchase of lathe, turning tools, and lathe accessories that will make your house payment look like pocket change!
