Oak platter that is 18 inches in diameter. Sanded to 320 grit. I applied several coats of Mahoney’s walnut oil as finish. Santa brought me a load of orders to work on so I will be a busy guy in January. This piece will see duty everyday in someones kitchen and will get lots of use.

Jeff: a great looking platter. Nice job. Is it 1” thick wood or thicker?

Karson, the blank that I start with was about 4 inches thick and came from an oak log that the tree service left for me. Turned down to one inch thick. I like to keep pieces that will be used in the kitchen a little thicker. You would not want to drop this bad boy on your toe!

Very nice platter. You must have a big lathe to turn that puppy!
How did you hold it to finish the back?
