I really like the flow of this piece Mark.
Willow is not a wood i`ve tried to turn, but if this is anything to go by, i shall keep my eyes open for some.
Lovely looking grain & well turned, as are all the items in your album.

It looks beautifully smooth and very light...........is it?
Lovely grain and like Baz, I too will be looking out for some of that wood too.

I have to agree with all of the above, it is a very nice platter
Sadly though our council went round 2 weeks ago and pollarded all the willow trees and i didnt manage to get any before it misteriously disapeared.
Will carry on looking though

The last time I tried to turn willow, it was light and soft, easily damaged.
I do like the platter, better figure than mine. I got that from a lock on the Grand Union Canal where it was jamming the lock gates!
This was years ago and my daughter still wont let me forget bringing a log home from holiday

Very nice grain and platter
Just remind daughter that while you collect free wood your not spending the inheritance

It was air dried, it looked awful to be honest, stained, bit wobbly when put on the lathe, cost about £6 if i remember right, i never thought it would come out the way it did. I found another piece just recently, hopefully it will turn out the same, you just never know do you!!!
