This is a small and relatively quick project. Made from soft maple; 7.25” in diameter and 1.5” deep. The design is a greek key pattern that I found online.

This platter is so outstanding and beautifully done. I love the wonderful pattern and it’s a fine eye catcher.

Amazing. I have to ask, what is in the center of pic #3? A small platter sitting atop the big platter?
