What a good question!
carve it - if you insist on doing it in situ. Make up a cutter to be mounted in
a trammel head to do the nicking, then follow with a chisel to remove a veneer
depth - repeat.
Or, you could rearrange the design a little
Build up the base using a solid bottom, a piece with a circular hole the outside
diameter, and a circle the inside diameter. Use the material cut out to form
the hole to form the disc. The grain will match. Glue together. All done
with saws, and maybe a shaped block for abrasive to smooth off the curves. No
burn marks. No jigs to make. No earmuffs needed.
