I normally don't buy wood but last April I bought a piece of Jobillo from our local Woodcraft store. Even though it was covered in all sorts of dirt hiding colors and spalting the piece of wood just kept nagging me to take it home. I'm glad I did. After five months I finally decided to turn a platter. The board initially was 1" x 16" by 20" or so and the finished platter is 7/8" x 15.5", finished in danish oil and buffed to a satin finish.
