Great looking job. No way I’d finish that. I’d start it, no problem.

I know what you mean ‘kept me occupied’. I’m working on something with only 40 pieces at the moment but thats doing the same for me.

I love the patterning on this one. Good project. Thanks for posting.

The size is 7-1/2” Diameter 2-1/2” high, The Black is Ebony Gaboon, the brown rim top & bottom is Cocobolla, the cream is Figured Maple, the red is Paduak and the fill background in the bottom is Walnut (from a tree on the farm which supplied us with nuts for cookies when I was a kid) It has 310 pieces, but as you all know—we on the numbers right? oh yeah one more thing the very center is a 3/4” walnut dowel drilled out with a 1/4” maple dowel inside that. The thickness is 3/16”
