Great plate. Love the rings. I like to here when someone get imaginative in their process. Useing the Brass flare nut to burn the circles is a very imaginative proccess.

That old growth recycled barn wood is beautifull. Fantastic turning and finishing.

Keep it up.

Ron, this is a gorgeous turning. The woodburnings were certainly imaginative and add visual interest to the plate.
