I did this on Lathezilla so I could control the depth and spacing of the grooves. I love this and want to make a mobile with different sized ones, just can’t decide on how to make a center worthy of the pieces.

All your postings today are just super..I am working on a platter like this (the method) and wondered what a lathzilla is..did you make a homemade jig/gizmo? I am having trouble getting enough design in mine…I guess I’m hesitant to take too much material out..a little spooky turning with that little bit of material holding it all together…looking thru & seeing the headstock is something I have to get used to! Thanks for posting these “wonders”

You can do this on a traditional lathe, but you better be really good with a rod cutter. I do it on Lathezilla.
If you want plans for lathezilla you can get them on
