Many thanks to Degoose for the design ideas. Again, I sell nothing.
I couldn’t wrap my head around Degoose’s jig so I tried Ampeater’s jig with a router.
My tired old PC 690’s didn’t like the workout but survived.
After using the router jig, the bandsaw jig was a snap.
I now have Degoose’s jig working with the scallops.
Just waiting for my muse to kick in on wood species.
Plus, I’m hoping to figure out the accent strips used by Degoose.
If they work like segmented accent strips then the whole project will enlarge.
Will I then need to drill a larger hole for a dowel or maybe an all seeing eye?
Any thoughts on the accent strips, please.
One problem is the family can’t seem to bring themselves to use it as a chopping block.
So, it’s a serving tray, not a chopping block and not a lazy Susan..ha ha
So much fun.

This is a beautiful board! Tell the family to use the backside for the cutting board!

Nice work. They will use it for a cutting board if tell them to just use one side for cutting and leave the other side in a pristine condition.
