I saw some beautiful work done by Alex Amoruso and decided to try one. Thank you Alex for the inspiration. After I finished the cutting of the pieces I realised that it was not going to look anything like Alex’s work. BUT here it is for anyone to look at. Now I realise where I went so wrong, but all the time not intending to make a direct copy.

The timbers are Jarrah, Meranti and Yellow Walnut, the finish is Feast Watson Kitchen Timber Oil and then buffed. The Platter is 13 inches in dia. and less than 3/4 thick.

C & C welcome and thank you for looking.

I get a little dizzy looking at it. Reminds me of a fancy pin wheel. Excellent work. That would be interesting mounted on a lazy susan.

WOW, put that on a pin at a BBQ, or any other place where some drinkers get together, and give it a quick spin.

It would tell ya right quickly who’s car keys to take away, and designate to a sober driver.

I haven’t had any alcohol in a few weeks, and I’m ready to turn in my keys.

That, Honorable Bob, is astounding. The simple fact that all the glue joints remained intact is, frankly, bewildering. You now what I mean. The joints around the center. Did you have any apprehension or trepidation with regard to that?

Thanks Guys for the comments, I am pretty happy with the end result.
I didn’t do it wrong, just not how it should have been.

Mark; I had to glue the pieces in two halves so I could get the middle piece out. Once that was done i turned the centre and glued in the middle rings which were made up from the smallest piece. Hope this makes sense.?
