I was using the OATS technique that I borrowed from toyguy and turnedbygeorge.com examples. This an excellent way of using the scraps that you get from making a platter from a square board. The corners can be cut off with the bandsaw and then made into 45 45 90 triangles and glued together. I made myself a jig to aid in the gluing the triangles together.
The woods seem to hold together pretty well, there is a slight difference that develops overtime at the seams, but nothing has fallen apart. I had a problem with making the center piece on one platter, I got it too small. But I was able to use it on the next platter.
The grain on the cherry platter changes so much depending on the light that it is interesting.
Comments and questions will be appreciated.
