Found a pile of cut offs buried in a corner so I glued them into a slab, cut that into chunks, glued those plus a couple of pieces of plywood into a stack and set it aside. Found the stack and for lack of anything better to do, hogged out the center with a Forstner and bowl bit combo. SWMBO decided the “thing” as she referred to it should be round so the outside was subjected to the bandsaw and Ridgid spindle sander and edges rounded. The finish simply Britwax.
The real question, what will SWMBO decide to use it for. As the inside diameter is only 4” Not my problem��

That came out great, Jon, Good use for the scraps, i am in the process again of gluing up scraps for a project. It takes a little effort, but why throw away or burn up wood that can be made into something,

And there is always the challenge of trying to envision what a pile of pieces “could” become.

Should also acknowledge Papasombre for the idea of including the plywood.

Nice. Candy dish. Make nice gifts.

There is no such thing as scrap wood, merely small pieces waiting to be used.

Great job Jon, I assumed it was a lathe project.
Really appreciate that “assumption”. I have great respect for those that can use a lathe but I have no experience in that area.
Although you obviously can get by just fine without one, 🙂 I highly recommend a lathe. I bought mine about 5 years ago against the advice of a friend who had "taken a turning class" and informed me that "not just anyone can be a wood turner and you're gonna find out, it ain't that easy!" 🙂
Actually it only took about a week of practicing before I started turning out some acceptable bowls, goblets, duck calls, table legs...... my little Jet1221vs is the most fun tool I own.
