Here are a couple of pictures of a biscuit cutter I made the other day. I know with my great photographic skills itís hard to believe but this one was a bust. I broke it around the rim, a nice 2 inch piece exploded. I was able to save it with some CA and sanding.
It has a diameter of 2 3/4 inches and is 1 1/4 deep. The rim goes down to form a knife edge so it can cut the dough. The next one Iíll shoot for a diameter of 3 inches. Iíve seen these several times at different craft shows and wanted to make a few for family members that still make homemade biscuits.
Itís made in two parts, the bottom and the knob. The hole in the bottom goes through and a small hole is drilled at the intersection of the handle and the bottom to prevent a vacuum with the dough. The knob has a tenon on the bottom that fits into the bottom.
For all you turning gurus how would you make one? Iíve blown up two. I'll jump in later with my "technique"
