Well, I figured out what to do next! Discussion and plans

Hi Everyone,

Now, you know it doesn't take much time for me to figure out what to do next and this time isn't any different.

Here's our next project: I'm going to glue up a really large block out of some hickory and a couple of pieces of black walnut and rock maple. Here is a picture of the pieces of wood lined up into a block:

After it's glued into a block I'll cut it into an octagon, or an eight-sided shape and then I'll place it on the lathe for turning. If I don't mess up we'll have a platter with scalloped edges instead of one continues round shape.

Here we go again! Another adventure in the wood shop beckons. Take care and see you soon.
