I turned this pizza cutter handle out of lacewood for my neighbor adam wells. The big problem and more of an annoyance really is that the lacewood splinters and fractures like small pieces of glass. It also requires a great deal of sanding to get a smooth finish. The pizza cutter head was purchased at woodcraft and it comes with a metal screw in collar so the head can be removed to clean it, which is excellent by the way. The collar has a grove for a large screw driver to fit in to screw into the handle, this slot does not work worth a damn. We found the best way to mount the collar to the handle is to screw it on the cutter head then use the head to screw it in.

Well i hope everyone enjoys trying to turn one it was definitely fun.

Nice piece of wood, shame it’s such a bitch to finish.
Thanks for showing.

-- 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.

My finishing techniques are vary different from most people’s. On this I use danish oil after sanding to 2000 grit then a coat of shellac to be able to coat over the danish oil more quickly. I then applied 3 + coatts of CA glue then wet sand to 12000 grit next about 7 coats of myland and a final polish of hut high gloss wax.
