Round Oak Wood Platter

This is a beautiful large round oak Wood platter that will make a spectacular centerpiece on your table.  It is food safe for fruits or cheese items.  The size is 13 1/2 inch diameter by 1 3/4 inches high. The grain from the age rings emanate from the center and appear as concentric ovals.

The technique to fabricate a platter or a bowl is almost identical.  A platter is essentially a shallow or flat bowl.  A woodblock spins on a wood lathe at a high speed and a sharp tool peels away layers of wood.  Once the shape is complete more time is spent with finishing which is sanding to make the piece come to life and have that tactile feel that makes it unique.

The final steps of sanding, buffing, polishing and applying a food-safe protective coating is to make each piece unique and special.   This offers a high degree of protection and will provide years of enjoyment.

I design all items in my studio in Montvale, NJ  USA. When you purchase from AATurning you receive an original Alan Adler piece.  I do not sell any third party items ever.

Care For Your Wood Products

This platter will require little maintenance.  It is best to keep it out of direct sunlight.  Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels.  Do not wash with water,  if necessary use a damp cloth. And finally wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore luster.  Beeswax, olive oil or mineral oil work fine.
