This stunning Maple Burl dish has some gorgeous figure, burl spikes, and deep voids. As I was turning this piece, looking at the side profile, and I couldn’t help but think this is what the underside of a flat earth would look like.
This dish was hand sanded to 800 grit and feels velvety smooth to the touch. It was finished with a Pure Raw Linseed oil and Beeswax mix (pastewax) that I make in-house. 100% non-toxic and foodsafe.
The timber for this piece was sent to me from a burl collector and enthusiast in Oregon, along with two other burl caps. After finishing them I sent one back to him. Trade work/barter system
