Platters That Matter 2nd Album

Carrying on from Platters That Matter , I have turned the 14" platter which is to be the middle of the set. This piece of Rosewood after it was cut into a round had a mind of its own. It wanted to change shape constantly due to either stress relief or the humidty and rain we were having. After some threats to make it into pen blanks it decided to settle down and behave itself. 

Forming the tenon and inistial shaping the underside then top the centre rised section is where column will sit. Each platter has been designed for a specific use, this one has a raised edge.

  Again Dansih Oil two coats.............now for the 18" "Mr Baseman"
