Thanks, there are fun and easy to make. I made five of them and gave them all away for Christmas and was a big hit.

How did you hold the platter to finish the front? Did you glue a spiggot on the back or cut in a pocket to grab it with a chuck?

Jim, I use a face plate and waste block, and I turn the front of the platter first then remove the waste block and remount it to the lathe using a donut chuck. My last platter I made was too big for my donut chuck so I bought a vacuum chuck and it works well as long as you don’t get to aggressive with the cuts.
