Great job all around.

You should post it there as well and more than likely Malcolm will give you feedback himself.

My only comment/critique would be that it seems to flatten out at the widest part on the main feature ring.

I think you owe it to yourself to make another one or two. You already did all the hard stuff, getting the sled set up, tweaking all the tools to accuracy and getting all your processes down to a science. I say go for it. Smiley

Thanks for all the comments.  I do agree that a darker wood on the bottom would have added more wow. I used oak because it was already the correct thickness. My next one will probably have a burl wood for the bottom.  I also had not noticed the flatness along the main feature ring. Another 1/2 inch extra diameter in the ring would have given me room to smooth out the transition.  I found that figuring the length of a feature segment and calculating where to cut to achieve the desired diameter was the hardest challenge.

I really only noticed it because I have done the exact same thing. I know now to allow myself a little extra next time.
Keep up the good work. Smiley

The bottom is an outstanding surprise -- both from the contrast and the off-center marquetry. 

Outstanding piece of work ---  showing beyond the mark patience and care.

Well done indeed!!!
