This maple platter was created for an upcoming user conference that my company hosts every year. The platter is based off a technique I learned from Al Stirt which uses black Gesso to form a nice solid background. Using a rotary tool, I created hundreds of little holes in the piece which provides the pattern on the piece. In this case I use my company’s logo for the design which I think worked out great. I finished the project with some glossy wipe on poly.
