Two 12-inch pine platters decorated with iridescent paints. I did a smaller maple platter a few months ago …

... and decided to do some more when I came across some dry pine planks that were 2-inches thick and over 12-inches wide.

These platters were inspired by projects posted on YouTube by Tim Yoder ( ) and Gary Lowe ( ).

I turned the platter and used a gloss black spray paint to ‘ebonize’ it. Working with the iridescent paint is a blast!

Very Nice, it looks great to me.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

You’re just having too much fun Gerry, but the results are beautiful. Those are really unique.

Gerry, this piece is such an outstanding piece. It is a wonderful eye catcher and I love the colors.

I liked ‘em before, I like this one, now. I’ve had my lathe 7 years now. Time to make a project. Even though I retired 2.5 years ago, I’m still working down the list of things to do. The MIL’s house is almost finished and ready to rent. That’ll help a lot.
