Well, I was having a new years eve party and I had some finger foods picked up when it hit me… I don’t have anything “nice looking” to serve any of it on. The bank account was still feeling Christmas so I didn’t want to hurt it anymore by purchasing plates so I decided to go to the shop and take a look in the cut off pile, then these platters and one bowl were born. The platters were quick to make and I think I will be making some more next year as gifts, they are 3/4” thick with an 1 3/8” hole for gripping/hanging, I used a thumbnail bit to achieve the edge I wanted. The bowl was a little bit more of a pain to make, it is my first attempt at making one. I free handed it with a router and a lot of sanding for the inside and I used the band saw and edge belt sander to achieve the look I wanted for the exterior. They are all finished with FDA approved oil. The best part is they were all free and quick to make for the party!
