I've had this idea in my head for quite a while. In fact I did a small prototype a couple years ago. Today was the day to do it for real. The basic idea was to do a donut shape but have it hollow as well. The sketch above was drawn on a napkin at lunch to explain to my wife what I was thinking and how I thought I could get to done.
I ended up changing the plan and the method a bit to accommodate a larger blank but the results are pretty much what I had in mind.
The wood is red streaked Box Elder. The blank started out at 9.5" x 4" and ended up around 9" x 3".
