12” Cherry platter from a huge Choke Cherry my brother dropped last year. Finish is Watco Danish oil. I haven’t decided if I will add a top coat.

Wow, that is some beautiful figure there!

I like that you kept tje curvature and overall design straightforward to keep the focus on that grain.

That’s a beautiful platter and the wood is wonderful.

Terry, I really like this plater it has a gorgeous grain. I am sure the reason the grain is so pretty is because of the way you turned this piece.

Thanks for sharing!!

Beautiful piece of wood – what great figure! I love the shape you chose for the platter it really excentuates that incredible grain.
