This is a platter that I learned how to carve during an Al Stirt class.

His class was one of my favorites.

The outer rim is dished a little bit, the tips actually drop down. I should re-shoot these pictures and take some of the back and maybe the side.

Ya know, when I made this I never thought I’d be painting and carving on perfectly fine cherry or maple. I’ve always enjoyed the wood itself, in it’s natural color when finished.

But – I thought I’d take a class and expand my horizons in an area that I didn’t have tons of interest and absolutely no experience. But I did want to know how it’s done. This is my first one, so I look at this like a prototype and I’m looking forward to making more. ;-) I did get to buy some more tools to make this too.

I am going to go take some pics of the back(s), that I should have done when I was all set up. The sun is just about right now, so I’ll post some more of this a bit later.
