912 Canadian Hard Maple Platter

912 Canadian Hard Maple Platter

Love this


This stylish Platter is a beautiful light colour with an outstanding grain pattern. The platter measures 215mm in diameter and 25mm in height with a wall thickness of 3mm.
I purchased the plank of wood from a woodyard in Dudley just before Christmas.
I turned and sanded the platter to make it ready to seal with cellulose sand and sealer and melamine lacquer before I polished it with wax polish to a pleasing sheen to enhance the grain.


I had a commission to make 2 maple bowls for a customer and the smallest piece of wood I could buy was a 8ft x 8ins x 2.5ins plank. With the wood left after making the bowls I decided to make more bowls and platters. This is the first of the platters which will make a loverly gift and look nice in any home. I also have another 5 platters in varying stages of making, which will also make loverly gifts that will look nice in any home.
