    WOB platter

    Havn't had much time for turning lately,but this am decided to finish up this white oak burl platter that i had ruffed turned about 3 months ago. It's one of only 2 that i ruffed that made the drying process. It's about 9x1 1/4, and only has 1 coat of teak oil on as of the pic. Need to get the wifes green house finished so i can get back to turning.Click image for larger version.

    Steve, once again, that's some good work.

    Another piece that lets the wood do the talking, shame you have lost some others in the drying if it was figured like that.
