Big Leaf Maple plate that I turned for Christmas present. Had to re-turn it this week after a accidentally let it hop off my lathe and fly across the shop, leaving a few dents. Luckily I made it thick or it probably would have borken in half. Turned out better the next go round. There is one small section on the bottom where a little decay started but my signature will cover that up.
This wood is great to turn, sand, and finish. And it’s hard to beat that figure. Very happy that I have a few more pieces from this tree.
Size: 9” x 1.5” and thick like a summer sausage.
Finish: WOP and HUT polish
Thanks for viewing! I welcome any comments and critiques.
