This is another plywood fun project which I am hoping to improve on in the future. The doughnut is 7 inches in diameter and hollow all around inside. Pic 1 and 2 show both sides. Pic 3 and 4 with artificial flowers and to show that the stem goes down the hollow. Pic 5 an 6 either end.
I used Marine Ply and the segments are glued with PCV glue.

Thanks Monte. G’day Ivan, every piece of plywood seems to produce a different pattern.

G’day, Bob, that is really unique! You have surely challenged me to make something out of plywood now…. and I have.
It looks like the doughnut was made in halves and then glued together. It must have been hard holding it for that parting cut. Do you have any pics of the process?
You are so creative!! Plywood gives it such a different look every time.

Cheers, Jim

Holy scrap! That reminds me of a video I saw on the tube about a guy that makes traditional gourds somewhere in Romania with primitive techniques. Plywood definately can be interesting if used differently!

Nice shape and size and, I think, enjoyable project. My question is why did you segment it while you could build it from plywood rings glued beside each other? I mean when you segmented flat plywood, it would return like it was, one flat piece of plywood, unless you had smaller than 7×7 inches. Just a thought.

Thanks Sam, I see what you mean about using plywood rings. I will have to do one with your suggestion. Using plywood was an after thought, originally I was going to use red gum and osage orange but thought if this fails I’m only losing offcuts. Thanks for the suggestion.
