I rough turned this green blank 12 months ago and it has been sitting in a box of shavings, just waiting patiently.
It got finished yesterday, so I am happy with that. The timber is Camphor Laurel and I’m afraid that I didn’t give that much thought at the beginning. Consequently it has been sealed with multiple coats of sanding sealer to ensure that the smell does not contaminate the bikkies.
The finish is from heat treating the sealer with OOOO steel wool, just like a friction polish, but retaining a matt finish which is beautiful and smooth.
The platter measures 15.5in x 2.5 in.
C & C welcome and thanks for looking.
