This is the project I made the compound miter fixture for. I’ll use the fixture for other things, but I wanted to see what kind of pattern it would yield if I glued 5 pieces of plywood up at 4 degrees and then cut it flat. I was not impressed with the pattern. It was not real distinctive and they corners did not match because of some slippage in the glue up fixture in the 4th picture. Oh well, live and learn. I would not have known if I had not tried it. Someone did buy one of the trivets at the sale on Saturday, though.They must have felt sorry for me!!
I did get to use my Longworth chuck for this one and it worked pretty good. I think a jam chuck will be faster for doing bowls, though.
They are made with 3/4 maple plywood and with a lacquer finish
