    Space Platter

    I think I spun the lathe a bit too fast for this one.

    Now that is just cool!

    I'm curious how you got the piece cut and glued so tight though.

    Novel approach! Very interesting use of complementary colors. Inquiring minds DO want to know how that was glued up.....
    Thanks for posting,

    Made up from offcuts, the pieces are marked out from card template.
    Then cut out on a band saw.
    The curves are then sanded to matching male and female curvature, making sure the edges are square to a face.
