  • 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.

        Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

        We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

        What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
