I decided that I wanted to try and turn some plates. They are both maple, the first one is 7” in diameter and the second one is 10” in diameter. They are finished with walnut oil and bees wax. I want them to be food safe. I really liked doing these and told my wife I want to make a set now.

Nice plates, the wood is real nice. I would’nt of guessed it being maple, the walnut stain made it a lot darker than the maple pieces I did.

Very nice work, the first one has striking figure that works well on a plate like this.

Beautiful wood. I like the design and shape of the bottom but the top does not match. Why didn’t you follow the outside shape for the inside?

What other woods have you or would you like to turn into more plates? Just try to avoid walnut for food service, its mildly toxic.
