Here is 3 new platters that I just completed. Here’s the steps-
-get some funky 1x or 2x material- generally 12×18 or larger
-The more cracked, mo betta!
-clean up any inclusions.
-Use a curved shoe hand power planer to create the scoop
-cut the back bevel on the bandsaw
-add a variety of softer materials, incuding abalone, malachite, azurite, lapis lazuli, ammonite fossils, shells, brass, etc.
set them in resin
-grind them flush, then sand sand sand sand,
-rub with thinned poly to make the figure pop
-spray with target poly
