a quick project I had this week, some platters shaped as leaves, the leaf is the one of the tree that the platter is made out of ;)

So here we have walnut, oak and teak. I guess you will recognize them ;)

A video of the process can be seen here :

A few pictures :

Cheers !

Pretty cool leaf shapes. Those grooves realy looks realistic – great idea.

Great job, never would have guessed the Teak – those trees don’t grow around here. :) Just leaf-herded the Oak and Walnut leaves yesterday (raked). Thanks for posting
