I made these pretty quick for our show this weekend in Weston, FL along with the others I had accumulated. I was playing around with different size segments in a layer so it wouldn’t look boring! Let me know if it makes a difference? I am trying to play with different sizes so I wouldn’t have to use thin strips to break the pattern.

Picture 1 and 2 Bubbinga and Oak dish 8 1/2” D x 2” H
Picture 3 Oak and Bubbinga dish 8 1/4” D x 3” H
Picture 4 Oak and Padauk dish 5 1/2” x 2” H
Picture 5 Cheese slicer (made 4)

Comments and critiques welcomed and appreciated! Thanks for looking.

Very nice Erwin. The different size segments is a nice touch and great wood combination.

Ya know … I’m really envious, Erwin, because wood turning is something I admire … but the concept is like ‘outer space’. It would be a whole new learning curve for me to tackle in my workshop! But I love what you do … and I know you love what you’re doing! ... which makes me more than satisfied just viewing artistic work in the form of wood turning! Good luck this weekend, and thanks for sharing!!
