This is a project i saw a drawing for a couple of years ago and now was the time to do something about making one. It is a gift for my sister-in-law who is a big Elvis fan. It is made from hardwood & finished with food safe oil.
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.
