I resawed some smaller apple log and decided to do something with end waste scraps. My wife wanted to decorate some advent wreath for Christmas table so I came up with this. I partialy sanded log’s bark and joined two pieces with 8mm dovels, finished with wood oil. I made 50mm holes with router and template. I tried with forstner bit, but there was tear out and it looked unsafe to do this way. Just screwed all on some pallet board at the end.
