Figured Sugar Maple | Central Kentucky

KNOX is a figured sugar maple wood serving platter that was hand turned on my lathe. Remnants of the wood’s bark are visible on the edge of the platter and the figuring on this piece is incredibly lovely. Also visible are traces of inner bark on both the face and the back of the platter. Any naturally occurring cracks have been reinforced. All of my work is one-of-a-kind, and Knox in particular is a truly unique piece. You don’t often come across wood like this!

The sugar maple was responsibly sourced here in Central Kentucky. The tree had been several hundred years old, and large parts had begun breaking off from age and after several severe storms. In spite of the challenges, the owners tried to save the tree but eventually had to make the difficult decision to have it removed. Now the wood lives on in a new form.

The platter is 15-5/8″ in diameter and 1-3/4″ tall with a depth of approximately 3/4″ and was finished with high friction polish to bring out the wood’s natural color, grain, and tone. This platter is safe to hold dried goods, but should be kept away from moisture and never immersed in water.
