Here’s a photo of the platter itself:
Both the plate and thingys are finished with beeswax.
As you can see Zebrawood has a great grain pattern. I turned a pen from Zebrawood a couple of months ago and was really impressed with the finished look. However, a pen is so small and it’s hard to get full appreciation of this African wood species. This is why I wanted to see what a faceplate turning would look like. I imagine the grain pattern will look fabulous on a bowl or larger plate.
Btw – ‘thingys’ is the only thing I could think to call those things. The closest I could find was ‘fan pull’ but these are definitely not fan pulls. Any ideas?
