Day 178: Mesquite platter

I finished the Mesquite platter tonight.  Sanded the front to 320 and then applied a coat of oil to bring out the grain.

1st coat of oil applied.

Then I flipped it around and put it on my vacuum chuck before sanding the bottom and then turning away the glue block and turning the foot, sanding to 320 and applying a coat of oil on the back.

Finished piece.  I still need to apply a couple more coats of oil and then buff it out but it's essentially complete.

Bottom side finished and oiled.  Immediately after taking this photo I burned my signature into the bottom.

Song of the night:
The Wallflowers - One Headlight.
