« Part 78: Spider Cane Part 79 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 80: Hors d'oeuvre »

This project was based off the theme of Thanksgiving for the month of November. The first project for this theme I thought a pie plater display pedestal would be nice. Although as I made it the piece seemed to grow. The plate became more of a bowl. It can still hold a pie dish, but can also be used for other things.

The base of the pedestal I tried to make fairly heavy to maintain balance with the contents above it. The pedestal itself was made stout and has a simple mushroom type shape. The tope plate or bowl piece has a recessed band as an accent. I made to lighten the top and give it some character.

Sapele is a beautiful wood. The gold streaks really pop in the light and show off some gorgeous chatoyance.
