Like most wood workers I save scraps of wood, especially hard woods.
This is a 14 1/2” diameter platter I put together from shorts and scraps of wood in my collection. There are 9 different woods in this turning, including Walnut, Maple, Birch, Tan Oak, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, Myrtle (Calif Bay Laurel), and another red wood I forgot the name of. Glued with type III glue and finished with several coats of processed Walnut oil.
My daughter was asking for a large platter so it will be hers.
