Thank you. I do this to all the coffee machines I have ☺️
You’re very welcome. Not the best write up I’ve ever done, but it will at least hopefully inspire others to have a go.
Apologies for the pictures being wonky. I’ve no idea how to fix them lol

That’s great to hear Mike. Wood turning is such a pleasure to do.
It all depends on the board for how much material is available. You can always use the middle sections of the board. The material is always different so you have to just take each piece as it comes. When I mean bare wood, I mean sand through the lacquers until you are at wood, this will still be dyed whatever the colour the board is in most cases. Apologies my photos don’t show this.
Hi. The skateboards have dyed veneers so the colours form naturally as you turn the blanks. I use the whole part of the tail and try to cut off from the flattest part (just before the wood starts to bend)If I do ever uncover the bolt holes, I normally just mix some skatewood shavings into some wood glue and then fill the hole. It adds to the authenticity of the boards having a former life :-)
Thank you. It is very time consuming, but the results are definitely worth it :-)
Thanks for the advice. That photo is a bad representation of what I actually do and I should really edit that. I do always spread out the glue, normally just with my finger edge to get an even glue up.
Or too tall :-) The bowl flat is roughly 3” and seems steady. Fingers crossed it stays that way
Thank you very much. They are fun to make
