I got these finished yesterday and today.

Jarrah Burl Platter is 15.75in dia and approx. 1.75in high. The top/inside voids are filled with coloured resin and polished with Mirotone Semi-gloss Lacquer.

The square platter is Tasmanian Myrtle and is 11.25in x approx. 1in and finished the same as above.

The cheese knife is made from Tasmanian Oak and is my very first attempt at a CA finish. (please don’t look to closely).

Thanks for looking and C & C are welcome.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Real nice Bob, nothing better than a well turned Jarrah burl and you sure did that. Tas Myrtle platter looks great.

Wow, the burl platter is gorgeous, and large, the voids sure add a lot of eye candy too. The square bowl is fantastic as well. Impressive work on both pieces. I’m still working on my turning skills, one day at a time.

Bob, Sorry that I am late to the party, I think that you know the reasons. Everything that i am seeing sure looks great, i like some of the others, wish that we had access to that kind of timber. How often do you have to dodge flying shrapnel? I am sure that both of these will sell quickly at your upcoming show, or have they been claimed at the homefront? I do like the CA finish on the knife, something that i need practice on, all of mine in the past came out crappy.

They all look great, gorgeous woods and beautiful shapes. Like most the square platter, interesting shape and great finish. Excellent work!
