A friend of mine got some laminated wood and arranged the pieces around a hexagonal form. He then put the lot onto his lathe and turned it. The piece he ended up with is an amazing vase shape. He removed the hexagonal form to give him a lovely biscuit barrel for his wife to fill with home made biscuits.
The angles the laminated pieces go at make all the difference.
a friend gave me several large slabs of laminated wood. The slabs are in the area of three feet long, two plus feet wide and two plus inches thick, fifty pounds or so, and in an assortment of colors. I have seen wood like this used for rifle stocks and modern crossbows, also as turning blanks for making pens. Seems a shame to cut it up for pens.......not to mention I will never make a thousand pens. Anyone have any bright ideas of what I could use
this stuff for?
