Wooden dish turned on my pole lathe.
This is a medium size dish turned from Beech. I 'double turn' my plates,i.e. they are roughly turned, left to dry and warp and then put back on the lathe for second round turning. This way, I can turn from smaller diameter stock and the plates will stay dimensionally stable. I do this because I think a wobbly plate is just not useful and enjoyable. You don't want to wear your gravy.
I started turning dishes after being inspired by looking at some of the Mary Rose dishes. Dishes are somewhere inbetween a bowl and a flat plate. I remember using dishes a lot when I was growing up and they were part of our evryday household items. If you eat something a little bit more saucy this is the perfect vessel to use.
The walls on this one are quite subtle and the dish is very light.
It measures 18 x 2.5cm.
Authentic and useable woodware.
Living history and re-enactors love these as they are properly turned on a tradtional, foot powered lathe. No sandpaper or any other cheats to make it look polished.
All plates are turned to a high quality standart that I love to maintain with all my work. Ideal for yourself, as a wedding or housewarming present, and for all re-enactors who care about the authenticity of their kit.
