    Some blue dye and the curly Tochi wood, I'm not sure how this worked, but it is all an experiment.........

    Just a little one, this is again the Tochi wood, which has a lot of curl and some spalting too. Coated with Watco and let dry a week, then buffed.

    I think the shapes of the platters are lovely!! I particularly like the footed, spalted one. If I was buying a platter at a show or fair, I'd be taking that one right quick! The blue one .... I dunno' about the colouring ... but .... it's just an opinion, and I'm sure no artist. Maybe I'd have to see it in person.

    cheers eh?

    Those are cool, Stu. I have some wood I should be trying that on since I saved it for just that purpose. I like the undyed one best. Nice finish on both.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    I like 'em both, Stu. I'd say the natural color one is my favorite, but you're definitely getting this square bowl thing down pat.

    Very nice Stu! The blue one is unexpected - but works. The natural is nice as well - I think the foot adds to it.

    Thos are cool Stu. I like the one with the spalting and curl in it. A nice balance.

    Nice turnings I too like the footed one and the curly w/spalting is particularly attractive. Nice work Stu!

    Nice work Stu! I'm with the majority here in that I also like the natural colored platter. For some reason I find it more attractive because of the touch of spalting!
