    11'' Platter Grenen (yellow pine)

    Well I had left over a nice sqaire piece of ''grenen'' (12''x12''x1 1/4''), just good enough for making a platter.
    Maybe not the right wood for a platter, but I did.
    Here the result. Thanks for looking.

    Not bad at all for a "left over". Looking good, Ad!

    Looks nice.

    I bet that knot was hard to turn, dulls the tools quickly eh?

    Is the yellow pine fairly hard? Any pine I've ever tired to turn was really soft and not fun at all to turn.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Stuart, yeah that knot was pretty hard, I knew that already, so I used a HSS tooltip for this job, worked pretty well, using a gouge would give me a catch on this knot. This yellow pine is not that soft, I love the smell of this wood.

    Nice work, Ad. You turned a leftover into an attractive piece. What finish did you use?

    Thanks Vaughn for looking
    Used blanc transparent stain for the finish, two layers with a slight sanding inbetween the two layers.

    Lovely looking piece there. The knot really makes it special. How did you mount it if it was that thin to start or do you have a vacuum chuck?

    Hi Pete, I don't have a vacuum chuck, but I mounted this platter on a selfmade attachment round plate for turning the backside, you can see this on my website http://members.lycos.nl/adecrom
