Here are two platters, each about 10” in dia, that I turned while I was in Phoenix. Both are figured maple and were from blanks acquired from the local Rockler store. They were sanded to 2000 grit, given 3 coats of Min Wax Antique Oil and buffed

Very nice platters. Lovely wood and I especially like the raised edge version design
