Greetings to all Lumber Jocks,

Lately I have become obsessed with Platters. My Good Neighbours, 2 Doors up had some work done on their home. My Neighbour Kev thought I might like some pieces that the Carpenter didn’t want. Which I gratefully accepted.
Neither Kev nor I know what kind of Wood it is, other than it is a very Hard Variety of Hard Wood.
The Grain has some quite nice features I thought.

The Finish is 3 Coats of CABOTS Bench Top Food Safe Varnish, Rubbed gently between Coats with 0000 Super Fine Steel Wool.
I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND WEARING A FACE MASK WHILE USING STEEL WOOL.

I really enjoyed making the Platter. Most likely more landing on L J s in the not too distant future…....
Apologies in advance Ha ha ha ….

Kind regards,

Happy and safe Wood Working….......Cliff.

Cliff, you may have a platter addiction but it’s no different than any other project you enjoy doing. The platter looks very nice and challenging yourself to make different designs is fun. It’s like you won’t be happy to you try them all.
I take all the free lumber I can, it’s great because it’s free.

Jim’s comment reminded me of something, if your wanting some fancy bits of timber I have quite a few which will be eventually removed when I start renovating my store room for rental accomodation so drop by sometime if your keen.
New Guinea Rose wood small QLD Walnut bits Cherry and Tassie myrtle plus other stuff.

Most of my plywood went to the local school.

Hi Dave, Thank you….Your quite correct. It is all interesting and enjoyable. So I think I will simply enjoy the addiction.
I have a huge stash of Lumber all free. A lot of it is Wild Timber, as in Small Logs which I am gradually Milling on my small Carter Log Mill which I couldn’t be without.
Regards…...Cliff

Crowie. Thanks Peter, How are you going? The Recipients are my nice Neighbours 2 Doors up who gave me the Timber. I get the Fun of making something with the wood and also the Joy of giving the finished article away.
regards…...Cliff

G’day Bob. Thank you I will keep the Wood Shavings flying all over the place. Then see what rolls out next….
I was lucky with this Platter, A recent One was a “Splatter Platter” It broke up into pieces.

Regards…...Cliff.

mel52. Hi Mike, Thank you very much. Yes I think the Lip around the edge helps to put a finish to it. I am thinking of different ways to achieve this. Hopefully I’ll get some ideas.
Regards…...Cliff

Hi Jim…Thank you…Yes I could wander the Neighbourhood with a cart and a Bell and call out “Bring Out Your Wood”
Regards…...Cliff.

grovemadman… Thank You.

Regards…...Cliff

robscastle. Thanks Rob. I’ll certainly keep that in mind.
Regards…...Cliff.
