I have finally entered the world of the end grain…
This dish of 22.5 cm (9 inch) in diameter did at the request of a person who loves to share roasts (custom well argentina). The dark wood is guayubira (Patagonula americana) and yellow is guatambú (Balfourodendron riedelianum), both very dense and closed grain. The glue for the job, Titebond III, of course.
The circular shape is made with the band saw, and the groove is made ​​in my router table, with a core box router bit. Tomorrow I add a photo of the special adaptation for the job.
Finish is mineral oil and beeswax.
I hope you like.

Finalmente he incursionado en el mundo de la testa…
Este plato de 22,5cm de diámetro lo hice a pedido de una persona que gusta mucho de compartir asados (costumbre bien argentina). La madera oscura es guayubira (Patagonula americana) y la amarilla es guatambú (Balfourodendron riedelianum), ambas muy densas y de grano cerrado. El pegamento que utilicé es Titebond III, por supuesto.
La forma circular la corté en la sierra sinfin, y la canaleta la realicé en mi fresadora de mesa con una fresa de media caña. Mañana agrego una fotografía de la adaptación especial para hacer el trabajo.
Termiando con aceite mineral y cera de abejas.
Espero que le guste.

Nice looking piece! I like the round shape and will have to do some of those. I am more impressed with the Roast Share, there isn’t much I wouldn’t do for some fresh Argentinian Beef!! mmmmm

Thank you all for your kind comments.
Gracias a todos por sus amables comentarios.

Push down and horizontally and turn! You have to make the cut in several passes to avoid burns and avoid accidents.
Apretar hacia abajo y horizontalmente y girar! Hay que hacer el corte en varias pasadas para evitar quemaduras y evitar accidentes.
