12" Flaming Boxelder Platter with Redheart Strip

12" Flaming Boxelder Platter with Redheart Strip


A gorgeous 12" Flaming Boxelder platter that has a Redheart wood strip.  This most definitely will be a conversation piece sitting on your dining room table.  

This piece of wood was brought back by me from one of my trips to Illinois.  Yes, I checked it on the plane, imagine seeing someone walking through the airport carrying a slab of wood!

The "flame" in the wood is caused by invading beetles and fungus. At first, beetles attack the tree, boring holes throughout the tree. Then the fungus invades the tree. 

Redheart is an exotic wood that comes from Southern Mexico to southern Brazil and Paraguay. 

  • Specifications

    The outside width of this platter is 11 1/2" (29.21cm), height 7/8" (2.22cm)  It weighs 1.5lbs (680.4g).

  • Construction

    This wood was harvested in Illinois by a local saw mill. I chose the very best part of the slab to create this platter.

    Once turned and sanded, I use Tried and True Varnish Oil Finish, which is a perfect blend of highly refined polymerized linseed oil and natural pine resin.  It is food safe.
