This platter is turned from red elm and measures 1.5” tall by 10” wide. It is finished with wipe-on poly. The grain reminds me of a candle in the wind.

You seem to turn these out quite quickly and the quality is amazing, as if the turning is an extension of you. Very impressive, sir.

If turning is as addictive as people say, you must have it bad. Its a wonder that you can produce so much but maintain such high quality. Another great project.

A very impressive piece of turned project The platter looks beautiful on all sides may be because of the chosen wood and the grain pattern. By the way what is candle in the wind?
