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.

Absolutely outstanding.
I love it.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

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