Although it is part of the Plywood Doughnut, it is a project on its own. The base is laminated pine and the arch is double layered of 12mm in thickness tazzie oak, off sat to give maximum strength. Photo #2, The TORUS is, magicly, hung in the air !!

That’s one of the best looking plywood projects I’ve seen. Too bad you are so far from East Tennessee, I’d give you some of my cutoff walnut, maple and cherry blocks to turn. Plywood? I’m still impressed.
