    From the pictures I canít tell - are these disks, platters, trays, shallow bowls? Maybe a photo from another angle?

    Ah, thanks. Nice to see the shape as well the color and pattern.
    Those were some long pieces of spectraply! The longest I have are 12"

    The design is interesting and visually striking. What I hate is the idea of working with Wenge! I keep giving away what Wenge I have but still have some since some others apparently don't like it either! I use some for support blocks on my glue-up press.

    Were they cut with CNC or conventional methods?
