After removing myself from the dull drums, I pulled this cheese and cracker platter out of the "Get it done" pile. Last of the red oak...thankfully, so the next ones will come from better stock.
14 1/2" diameter, sanded to 600 because red oak gets some open grain in spots. 6" white marble insert and about 10 coats of Formby's Tung oil finish. I used WOP on the first one and IMHO...either it sucked or I did...jury is still out. I really wanted to do something with the accent ring, but I guess I lost interest. The underside of the rim has a groove to make handling easier. About a 9" base for stabilization...I've found that wine usually accompanies cheese and the platter becomes less stable with more empty wine bottles stacked on it.
Thanks for looking!
