During a recent visit to my saw mill buddy’s barn I found a pile of air dried Hickory. I dug out several 5/4×10” boards. These were real dry and didn’t even show a reading on my moisture meter. So I sharpened my tools and went to work. I made several when I got a call for a set of 6 by Thanksgiving. I explained that I did not mass produce anything and make every plate just a bit different. “NO PROBLEM, just what I want”.
#1 shows 5 of 6 done. #2 is a knot I just had to use in a serving plate and my wife took that. In all I made over a dozen and sharpened my tools many, many times.
Finished with food grade mineral oil. Each one come with written instructions for care of wooden plates too.
