this piece is 2 inchs thick by 14 inchs across, hard maple platter, finished with tungoil and wax buff. and just a side note this piece is not a glue up it just looks like one where the grain straightens.all comments and suggestions welcome.

This is a really nice turning. I am glad that you added the note in your commentary since I would have assumed that this was a glue-up. Posts like this make me regret not having a lathe in my shop.

Nice platter! I too, wish I had a lathe. Isn’t hard maple ‘fun’ to work with? ;)

Very nice turning. I made one that big and turned it into a lazy susan. Worked out pretty good but the grandson like to watch things fly off when he spun it.
