This is a 10-1/4” turned maple plate. The design is burned into the plate. I used a semi gloss laquer and wish I’d had time to find a flat sheen. This is the second plate I’ve made in this style. You can see the first on the turning forum. A gift for my mom. There’s also a work in progress pic.

Outstanding! Beautiful work. Your burning really adds to the turning.

I’m sorry that I have not responded sooner, but I have been out of town for the past week. Thank you all for your kind words. The plate was appreciated and set in a prominent place.
