Zipper and Lace Platter


Zipper and Lace Platter

This is beautiful Zipper and Lace Platter featuring a zipper and suede lacing that wants to seal the cracks that developed after the platter was turned.  The style is Natural Edge. The definition of Natural Edge is a wood product with the bark left intact or the rough edge that remains if the bark is removed or falls off. The size is 18-inch diameter by 1 1/2 inches high.

I had to find a way to save the platter after the production cracks appeared.  It was too interesting a piece not to find a way to save the platter.  These unexpected events become Design Opportunities and my solution to save the Wood platter was to add a zipper and leather lace.  This will definitely be a conversation piece and will make a unique centerpiece in your home. Just picture this unique piece on your dining room table.  I  use zippers in other pieces and like to bring other elements into my work.

Care for your Zipper and Lace Platter

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.


I design all of my items in my studio in Montvale, NJ USA.  Should you purchase AATurning I guarantee it is an original Alan Adler piece.  I do not sell any third party items.
