    Burned platter

    Well i figure that Jim showed his first burned piece, so i thought i'd show ya mine.. This ain't quite done as i want to knock it down with steel wool and wax and buff. It's made of some walnut that i got off the job site.The scrap was from a counter top for the ladies island. Wish i had brought my camera and gotten a pic of that but i didn't, and i've been stuck over at the other job. Well i'm going to give this to the doc and his wife as it will match there island top. It's 17" x 1 1/2" Thanks as always and all c&c welcome

    Great looking plate and the caduceus looks great.

    Awesome work, Steve. The platter is beautiful and you did a great job on the burning. The photo is very nice, too.
