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.
