So, as the title says, I thought I would try something different. You know, BRIGHT IDEA.
After the other segmented platter worked so well my AMBITIONS were FLYING HIGH. I did have the good sense not to use good wood for this though.
The plan was to reverse the angle of the wedges (segments).
The timbers are Jarrah, She-oak and Meranti, it’s about 9 inches diameter.
If you look closely you will notice whits stuff in all the flaws, that’s White Diamond polish wax, which proved another point. Don’t use it unless you have a really smooth surface.

I have this sitting on top of my desk to remind me that I shouldn’t try it again.

Thanks for looking and C & C welcome.

WOW is that ever an attractive piece, Bob..Very nice work on it!! I get white diamond and Carnuba wax left on some pieces too, but if you rub real hard with the grainn with a rag, you can remove it

Cheers, Jim

Different it is and I like it. It will work great with pastries. I also have a couple bowls with matching wax on them. LOL.

Thanks Guys for the feedback. Maybe I will have another go at it and see if I can make it look better.

Mark, It’s really quite simple. You cut the wedges, then chop a bit off the end of each one, glue the inner sections and then reverse the outer pieces.
The only difficult bit is making them match at the join.
See Simple???? LOL

Can’t believe I’m saying this.
