1274 Fiddleback Maple

Completed 9/7/16. Basic bowl blank was kiln dried, and metered 12% on receipt. It measured 10% MC prior to final finish, which was about two years later. It was only weighed a couple of times during seasoning, and it lost no weight during that time. This is a "rounded bead" version, which I haven't done for a number of years.....until there was a discussion about this in the newbie forum. I like it, but I still feel the "squared bead" look is very aesthetically appealing, as well. I've decided I'll use both rounded and squared beads for this type of platter turning for the future. The size is 13 5/8" wide, and 1 7/8" tall. Weight is 535 grams, or 18.9 ounces.

      Odie, excellent, as always. What is the finish on this one?
    • odie
      Hello Raymond.......it's my usual Watco danish oil, with the three-step Beall buff. Nothing very complicated.

      Thanks for the compliment, odie......

      Great look with the rounded bead

      Thanks Gerald........Yes, I like the rounded bead, too.......don't know why I ever stopped using it. I'll be doing both the rounded bead, and the squared bead from this point forward.

      I really like your treatment on this one odie, the FB kind of radiates from the bead out to the edge

      Hi Peter, and thanks......How goes it in NZ? :)

      Fiddleback is crazy to try and capture it in photos well. By just turning the platter a small amount, the light captures the FB grain altogether differently. Of course, I do attempt to photograph the most aesthetically pleasing view.
