A simple maple platter turned from a crotch that I milled last year. I still have another section of this crotch with good figure left to turn.
It is 11” in diameter and finished with a shellac/linseed oil blend.

Nice job centering the grain. It really pops!

This is a beautiful platter and I love the outstanding wood that you used.
