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.
