10 1/2” Ash platter.Inclusion has not been touched up in any way.The finish is not quite what I wanted but was afraid to turn much more off as thr fox might go away.Sometimes woodturning does have a few good surprises.

Jake, that’s awesome. Sometimes we just need to be reminded God makes the wood beautiful and when we look for his design, we make our most beautiful projects. He creates, we modify and hopefully enhance.
