Last year I was invited to showcase some of my work along with other local artists
at the Chattanooga Jewish Community Center.
The requested theme was “Platters”.
These two medallions are 20” in diameter solid crotch walnut.
My friend Alex has a Woodmizer saw mill and I get a lot of my wood from him.
These were two of best pieces from
a big tree he milled. They were air dried for about two years.
The blanks were turned on my Powermatic 3520-A.
I used a couple of forstner bits to drill most of the openings
and then sawed the remaining areas with my new “old Delta-Millwalkee” scroll saw.
My coping saw is retired to a nail on the wall.
The finish is Mahoney’s Walnut Oil.
