Here’s a padauk platter I turned for my wife recently. It’s finished with 3 coats of General Finished Salad Bowl oil. It was inspired by another platter here on lumberjocks.

Looks nice. Wish it has some perspective. Is it as big as a quarter or a paper plate?
I’ve had some issues in the past turning padauk. Sure doesn’t look like you had any problems. Nice job.

Thanks guys. It’s the size of a paper plate. I’ll try to put up a pic with a different angle.

Great job, I love working with Padauk, it is a great wood that sands and cuts really smoooooth. Kind of pricey though.
Thanks for sharing
