This one was a bit of fun, it was my first natural edge piece. Mounting was the biggest problem, and I decided that the way to go was to attach a face plate to the back, which was smooth and flat which then allowed me to cut a tenon into the rough natural edge. Then I could cut and shape the outside and bottom of the piece, which included another tenon. Reverse mount and machine the inside to final stage. Sand and spray with Krylon varnish.
Then remove the base tenon with the angle grinder, sand and spray the bottom.
Finished size approx 9in x 2.5in.
Hope you enjoy.

Way to go Bob, very interesting project, looks like a lot of air turning there. One of these days, I will get brave, and do some natural edge projects. Still have a lot of nice pieces in the woodpile, as the winter wasn’t that rough, should be some good choices left in there.
