First try at a platter. This one was fun – I will certainly turn a few more in the future.
Quarter-sawn white Oak, approx. 10” in diameter.
Turned from a gnarly 12/4 cut-off from a table project that worked on a while back.
This piece was on my lathe for a long, long time. There were several voids that I ended up filling using thick CA glue.
Add some glue, let dry, turn.
Add glue, let dry, turn some more.
After several cycles, I managed to close the voids and stabilize the piece.
Sanded through 400 and finished with several coats of spray laquer.

I recently moved and this was the last piece I turned in my old shop.
I was blessed with some really great neigbors, so this was given to one of them as a ‘thank you’.

Thanks for taking a look!
