Yup, these two woods were meant for each other. Looks beautifully done. Do you have vacuum ? I’m looking at the thinness and flat bottom . . .

Yes I do vacuum chuck but I have done this with other options like the large nova chuck jaws others make them and home made units can be built…vacuumed is pretty easy but it can be dangerous in power outages and you can break things by imploding them, but I like it..

Beautiful plated! But what the hell is Scottish oat cakes… is that something you eat with Haggis ? :-)

No it is linked to my Spurtle project posting earlier… long story drug out to far perhaps and a twisted mind as well
