This is a thin piece of English Walnut I used to try my first platter. It was under 1” deep, 12”d. and had a wany edge to it, but came out a final dimension of 11-1/2” diameter and 3/8” thick. I was flattening the face when a darned pin knot emerged, and was just off-center. It drove me crazy to look at (photo 3), so I drilled out a bed for a glass bauble. You can see the remainder of the pin knot of the back side. All suggestions and comments are welcome. I’m just learning how to do these and want all the advice I can get!
