A piece of oak retrieved from the woodpile that I hogged out with a King Arthur followed by lots of sanding. Candy red on the outside and al over topped with NC lacquer. 16” long by 10” at the wide end.

Thanks for looking.

I admire your effort. Good looking piece! A diagonal slice w/the chainsaw?

That came out great, the finish is spectacular as well.

I have a similar tool to your king arthur and can really appreciate all the effort you put in sanding this dish.
It look’s great, nicely done !

Never knew a piece of firewood had so much potential. Really nice effect!

Nice looking platter. I like the color on the bottom it contrasts well with the natural grains and curl.
Thanks for posting it.

That looks so good! Is the red color natural or is it dye?

Skiedra…The red is an automotive base coat applied lightly enough so that up close the wood grain shows through.

Albachippie…. It fits on an angle grinder.
