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!!
