This project was requested by a friend that was looking for a centerpiece featuring the Yin Yang symbol with the holes being large enough to accommodate her candles in jars.

This centerpiece can also be taken apart, and used as two charcuterie boards as well. That means the walnut and maple is finished with a food safe finish of mineral oil and bees wax.

My big concern with this project was a line down the center true to the symbol with smooth curves that mate well together. I used a template cut using a laser cutter, and then a router with a flush trim bit to accomplish this. I created a blog to describe the process and challenges encountered:

This looks great. Nice job! If you can find small dishes the right size for the holes they would be perfect for dips.

What is the diameter of the whole piece?

The whole piece is 20” across. The holes are 4”.
We started trying to make it smaller (like 14” across), but the requirement to have the holes at 4” made it look funny, so we had to go larger overall…
