I had a friend ask if I could turn her a wooden cake stand and I rounded up a piece of Florida cherry with this result. It was turned in two pieces and glued together. The Florida cherry has some of the most beautiful color and grain you will find and as it ages it gets even more patina and color. All of the wood that I use is recycled wood that was headed for my local landfill or fireplace. Even my scraps are used by a friend to smoke BBQ. the size was around 11" in Diameter and 6" tall.
