This serving plate for Sushi is heavily inspired by all of you here that make beautiful cutting boards.
I just wanted to make my own version of it and I love Sushi so it had to be a Sushi plate.
This plate is made out of Cherry wood and some exotic wood that I don’t know what it is, it is like working in Teak.
It is finished with with home made mix of bee-wax and walnut oil, so it is absolutely food safe.
This was the first time I made this mix after some research on the web and it is joy to work with so it has become a favorite to use.

With the INCRA Miter 1000HD I made a jig that could hold the triangles that made up the pattern. Lesson learn here is to make all the same size for the 3/4 or the circle and have the same with of “cut off” top of the triangle.
It would have bade the glue up much easier and correct.:-)
I used a 90 degree angle fixture from my metal workshop to support the cut in the bandsaw.
The circule hole was made with a router and the same for the plunge that goes in it.

Yes Jim it is real nice to have the metalshop for support, just to build jig or fixture and tools for woodworking. Or even making details for project out of metal.

What a great sushi plate ! I like the design and the two woods harmonize nicely. It was nice you included a few construction shots too.

Hate sushi, love the plate. I really like woodwork with contrasting colors, but my wife does not, so anything I make for other people, I try and talk them into contrasts so I can work with it.
