Carving a Cherry Bread Plate

 

Bread Plate Plans

I came across a lovely bunch of rough cut cherry wood, which I have been on the hunt for since my last bread plate went to a good home in Fernie, BC. I have wanted to carve another similar plate, but as long-time readers of this site know, I need the perfect piece of wood before I can start. 

I went to visit my mom and while I was there I dug through dad’s old piles of lumber and found the perfect piece of cherry. 

Bread Plate Glue-Up
 
I after rough-sizing the wood and jointing the edges by hand, I glued and clamped the wood together on a flat surface. I only need one flat surface for this project as the rest will be carved away. 

Next job is to cut a circle out of this board and plane it perfectly flat.
