Stitched Cherry Platter

Cherry Platter with Copper Stitch Repaired Crack

A small platter in cherry wood. As the wet turning progressed, a crack developed. The best way to repair the crack and ensure my safety while turning it was to glue it closed with instant glue. After the form was finalized and the piece dried completely, holes were drilled, the crack was emphasized with pyrography and the copper wire was added.

A coal of oil accentuates the figure and colour in the wood grain and 8 coats of wipe-on-poly were applied by hand.
