This is the Second Platter from the Silky Oak from my Good Neighbour.
Same Size as the Previous One. Finished with CABBOTS Bench Top Food Safe Finish. This Time I think my Photography has improved a little Bit…Sorry about the Glint of light in the Top Right. I tried a semi Darkened Room with a Flash Setting this time.

Kind regards to all LumberJocks…...Cliff.

This platter shows off well Cliff. I like the beads around the edge. I have lighting problems too with pictures but found if I can take them outside they come out better looking in the natural light. Just a thought. It can get a little rough in the winter. LOL

Really like this one, especially the finish.

Shame I am allergic to Grevillea (Silky Oak) timber. It has such a great grain pattern.

Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

BobWemm ..Thank you Bob. Yes I have heard that some people are allergic to Grevillea Silky Oak. I wonder if the Queensland Silky Oak causes the same allergies? In Queensland Silky Oak was very popular right from the early days, even Church Pews and I think Coffins were made of Silky Oak and many items of furniture.
Bob, thank you for mentioning this, I will do some local research on Queensland Silky Oak.
Yes the grain pattern is always very nice.

mel52…Thanks Mike, glad you like the grain in the wood. I am trying to improve my photography, my pictures have been a bit out of colour focus. But I am working on it.
