Step 1: Grab some wood
There are three legs that are 6 1/2" long and 2 1/2" diameter spindles glued up from some scrap maple and walnut.
Lastly, The top platter is 10 1/2" in diameter and 1"thick. It is made up from 3 cherry boards edge glued together to form one large 12" rough square board.
As far as large equipment, you need a Midi lathe with a large enough swing and drill press. I used my table saw as well as a miter saw however, these are not necessarily "must have" tools for this project. If you have large enough wood blanks already you are pretty much ready to go.
Pencil, straightedge, compass, angle square, spring punch or scratch awl 1/8" drill bit,
Sandpaper, tung oil, sealer, polycrylic clear semi-gloss finish and some food safe wax.
