946 Wooden Platter made from Iroko

946 Wooden Platter made from Iroko

Love this


This stylish Platter is made from an African Tropical hard wood called Iroko which has an outstanding grain pattern. Iroko is sometimes used as an Oak or Teak substitute in cabinet making. The platter measures 175mm in diameter and 12mm in height..
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 used an off cut of Iroko which came from a cabinet maker I know. When he is unable to purchase Teak he sometimes substitutes it with Iroko. When visiting his workshop I noticed this off cut of Iroko and ask to buy it, I thought the wood had a nice colour and grain pattern because he'd shown me a nightstand he'd made fro it. I intended to make pens out of the wood, but the wood was to thin so I decided it would make a nice platter.
After looking at the photograph I'm sure you will agree the platter would make a beautiful keep sake for yourself or as a gift for someone special.
