Shaping Project: Walnut Disc (2015)

After learning how to use many tools in the woodshop, we were tasked with creating and shaping an 8" disc out of solid walnut. Below is my process of making the wooden disc.

I chose to have a 1/4" edge on my disc. Here you can see the two opposing faces of my disc. The disc was finished with dozens of coats of shellac, then eventually buffed and polished.
