Pics 2 and 3 are my take on spalm’s “feathers” cutting board. walnut, ambrosia maple, spalted birch, kentucky coffee tree, cherry, and sassafras. 15”

Pic 4 is a new design I am trying out. It is called a second generation mitered laminate. SPF and sassafras. 8”

Pic 5 is a typical chevron with the same woods as the “feathers” bowl. Wiped down with alcohol. 15”
The bowl in pic 5 flew off the lathe to the concrete floor while sanding with 80 grit. I could use any recommendations on a power sander to finish sand it.

Yes they were Pete. They are as big as I can go on the inboard side. I added a 6th pic with one still mounted to my lathe, a 50+ year old shopsmith 10ER

Really nice, you managed to get some life into those.
I would be so afraid to digg in if I was doing that.
I am always impressed to see how some woodpieces can end up like that – amazing.
Best thoughts,
