  • Lathe Turned Platter with Scrollsawed Center

    I started this 9" platter yesterday afternoon and finished it off this morning except for final finish. At this stage it has only Watco oil on it but will get a few coats of semi gloss lacquer after the oil has cured.
    I had no plan in mind when I started. I was just turning a platter and when I saw that the wood grain was not all that exciting, I decided to dress it up a little.
    Woods are local silver birch and aspen and eastern black walnut.
