Took advantage of the recent warm(ish) weather, and spent a little time at the lathe. I was going to make this back around Christmas, but time was not on my side.
Just a simple two-tone plate, 7 inches in diameter, in bamboo.
if you’re interested in a little bit of the how too, check out my blog: http://wp.me/p18Kn-41
Had fun with this, and would like to make more… but not until I get myself some Cole Jaws. They would save me a ton of time, and some minor issues with reverse mounting – primarily removing, and cleaning up the bottom.
I spent just about as much time sharpening the chisels as I spent turning… this bamboo was tough! Way tougher than the pens I’d turned previously.
*wait, you said “simple?”... tell me about that glue up…
Not much to tell… just a quick trip down the clearance aisle at Homegoods, scored me a $5 cutting board that was too small for any practical use, and WAY cheaper than the stock I’d need to glue up. Wouldn’t THAT have been fun?
