This was a piece I started as a demonstration for my woodturning club. I only had about 1.5 hours for the demo so most of the work was completed at home. I used a 1/8” beading tool and divided the beads into 80 segments. The pattern was the same I used on a previous project a few months ago, but I gave that piece away as a gift. This one I will keep. Approximately 7” in diameter made from 2 pieces of 3/4” maple glued together.

Julian, you really have mastered this process. I really love this one, and if I had done it I wouldn’t be parting with it either.
Excellent workmanship.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
