These are the "sandwiches" of redheart and maple to be cut into segments for the base.
The 12 staves cut from the sandwiches and ready to be glued together for the base. Black veneer will will be glued between each segment. The scallops will be produced when the curved surface is turned on to the base.
These are are two other sandwiches that have grooves cut in them by my shaper.
The grooves interdigitate in this manner.
The two sandwiches glued together to form the top of the crown.
This is the crown having just been turned. Note the sandwich glued in place on top.
