Here is a 16.5” platter I recently turned for my wife. It is made from a single piece of Sycamore. It is 2” deep and finished with multiple coats of salad bowl finish. The wood is a little soft and soaked up three appliations of the finish before a top finish started to develop. The grain and pattern in the wood is even more dramatic than the picture shows and I have the feeling it will get a lot of use but it could just be put on display to show off the beautiful wood. The wood was supplied by my step son who does custom wood sawing in the Santa Cruz area of California so that makes the piece even more valuable to my wife.
