This woven patterned platter is a prototype for the new woven patterned Dip and Chip Lazy Larry..
Tasmanian Blackwood weave with Silver Ash as the background….Silver Ash and Purple Heart accents..
Used a bowl cutter in the router on the Torque Workcentre.. Still have not been able to document this as I would like… so please be patient … I will blog the techniques soon..
The platter is 1 inch thick and 13 inches in diameter….Fourth photo is of the base.. as you can tell I plugged the pivot hole with some purpleheart…
Thanks for coming back and looking.

Very appealing pattern. The woods used look great together.

Another winner design! Love that wood combination, too.
The weave pattern is on my “to try” list, but I don’t know if I’ll ever make it look this good.

All I can say is that you have more patience than most. Did you paint that or actually make it out of wood? Absolutely beautiful work!

I can hardly wait till you get a lathe and do these the old fashioned way? This weave is one of the best projects I have seen here on LJ’s. Thanks for sharing.

Hmmm…any Scots out there wanting to see their Tartan in a tray or platter? This is pretty doggone sweet…but I’m not a Scot. Probably the only nationality I missed in my mongrel background. This may explain my preference for Scotch…hard to say.
