This is my 100th project to lumberjocks. It was in a long list of things to do for some time. This doughnut is made entirely of plywood (288 pieces). It took me 3 days to build the blank and 6 houres to turn and finish it, keeping in your mind that I used the same wooden chuck that I designed and made for the first doughnut few years ago.
photos # 4,5 and 6 show the rubber bands I used to hold it inside the wooden fence. I had to go back to my old lathe that I had renovated to take bigger diameter object as this chuck was nearly 40cm in dia.
NOTE: Picture # 6 is replaced to show the chuck I made to hold the doughnut from its centre to turn the outside.
