Great lookin’ plates, but….. Did someone say cookies?! A box elder bowl about of that same diameter and 2-3 inches deep would be just the container for cookies!! When could I pick them up?

Ya’all are welcome to stop by the shop. Betty makes so many cookies that there will be plenty. I will turn you a plate while you eat. Question was asked about attachment. I use a face plate and short screws, turn a recess, finish, re-attach to a 4 jaw chuck to finish. Off to the mill today for some more Box Elder, she likes them best. Cookie making is this Saturday. Wheew hurry Christmas…............
