I found this piece of maple Ive had for a couple years, it was a ruined project I had tried to use some enlace I had bought from Woodcraft. The enlace, I read later, was supposed to be crushed up before using. After ruining a couple of tools, I took it off and threw it in the corner. Well I dug it out and dug out the enlace, and found some decent looking tiger maple with some birds eye in it. It made a good looking platter. I used my Lancelot to hog out the enlace, which is made up of minerals. Is quite hard.

Good save. The learning process never stops. The day I say I know it all you should give me a kick in the rear.

Nice looking platter. What kind of finish did you use? And can you tell me more about how your enlace didn’t work? I just made a platter with enlace that I just finished gluing into place.

The finish is Waterlox, a stain, and wipe on poly.
