Spalted Beech | Franklin County, KY

HENRY is a spalted beech wood serving platter that was hand turned on my lathe and made from wood that was responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky.

This particular piece of wood has a rich depth to its coloring as well as some beautiful figuring and spalting. Spalting occurs when wood is allowed to begin initial stages of decay and then subsequently dried to prevent further decay. The partial decay is called spalting and gives the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks where fungus began to attack the wood.

You will notice a few cracks in the wood as well. These cracks are naturally occurring and have been reinforced. They add to the beauty and character and make this a truly one-of-a-kind piece.

The platter measures approximately 12-7/8″ wide, 1-7/8″ tall, and 1″ deep and was polished with food safe Terra Nova NaturOil followed by a coating of beeswax which for added protection.
