More Pandemic Playtime

Still playing in the waves :grinning: Six layers of 1/8" Baltic Birch, a lot of cutting for an 8" diameter and the burly runs great! :+1: ~380mm X ~380mm work area, thinking of expanding for even bigger adventures!

EDIT: Changed pic to finished product, cut a ring of walnut to frame it.

Wow - very nice! That white foam layer must take a while to cut

Not too bad, it was a 1.5mm carbide bit and I didn’t want to push it, only took 23 minutes to cut, probably be measured in multiple hours if I had to do it with a coping saw and refreshments would be needed. :roll_eyes:

Absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you! I probably became aware of the original print β€˜The Great Wave’ more than 40 years ago and have loved it ever since.

One of my all time heroes, Jacques Yves Cousteau, said it far better than I likely ever will:

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
