    Cheese and Crackers, Anyone?

    Mesquite, 11 1/4" x 3 1/4" sanded to P600 with Zinsser seal coat finish. A fun project and LOML's favorite so far. The kit (glass dome, marble tile and knife blade) came from CSUSA.

    Cody, I like this, and it's so practical! Did the "instructions" come with the kit from CSUSA?

    Cody,

    That is *way* cool. There's no way I could ever get those pieces to match! Looks great!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Great looking piece Cody. They are pretty good sellers for me. I have made several and all go pretty quick.

    Wow - great looking and functional! Love the color combination - the green of the stone really highlights the Mesquite! Also - I like the brand! You did a good job applying it - clean and clear!

    Thanks for the comments y'all.

    Nancy, yes the instructions come with it but to be honest, I didn't use them. Actually I forgot I had them until it was finished. I just went from memory looking at the picture and using calipers to measure for the dome, marble tile, etc.

    I had to glue up two pieces of Mesquite to max out my lathe capacity (11 1/2") and I also placed a block on top because I wanted to raise the cheese plate above the main platter. The instructions show them the same height.

    Steve, that brand gives me fits sometimes. It's really a guessing game to get all the letters burned in evenly without scorching around them. I've had to sand them off a few times and re-apply.
