I turned the platter from a cherry tree that was blown down in the 2008 Clinton, Arkansas tornado.

This is a beautiful platter. Cherry is such as gorgeous wood and the knot and grain patterns give this piece character. Nice job.

Outstanding. Spectacular piece of wood, transformed into a piece of usable art – don’t get much better than that.

Nice job. It’s hard to come by cherry.
You used the grain nicely.
