Again, this project is built out of off cuts that I have collected from many previous projects. 280 mm in diameter and 45 mm thick platter. The center lines are batauk and walnut and the rest unknown furniture timber. Finished with sanding sealer and bee wax.

Nice looking platter. I like the red center accent.
I have done several similar ones with multiple colors. It was a good use for short “scrap” pieces of hard woods that I had accumulated.

At first I thought this was your impression of Jupiter, then I looked at the other images!
A real gorgeous piece of work.
