This platter was turned from a 2” x 11” round. I was really pleased with the figure that came out.
Sanded to 2000 grit with 3 coats of Min Wax tung oil, then buffed.

That grain pattern is outta this world!
And that finish is so polished it looks like marble.

Beautifull turning. Great score on that piece of burl. The grain is outstanding.

Your finish is second to none. Agree with WoodWrecker, It could be stone it is soo shiny!

Keep up the fantastic work.
