This is a project I have been thinking about for quite a while. It was going to be my first project on the Longworth chuck, but it was too big for it. These are supports for paper plates. We use paper plates a lot for left overs and especially watermelon. Well they are pretty flimsy and bend real easily and I have spilled off them many times.
I was given this piece of 2×12x12 European Birch and I knew right away what it was going to be!
I resawed it and glued a tenon on each half and turned these plate supports.
They are 9” dia. and .800” thick finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.
I would like to thank Roger Lance for introducing me to the Bedan!!!!!! I just love that tool. I roughed out and finished cut the internal flat area of these plates with that bedan alone. It is a great roughing tool and this time it was used for the finish cut too! I use that tool all the time when starting the hollowing of a bowl. You can really hog out wood with it!! This one was 22 bucks at Penn State. So much for the commercial, but if you don’t have one, try one!!
Have a great Week End!!!!..................Jim
