The luster is very dramatic when you move this platter through the light. It is beautiful if I say so myself.
It is about 10 1/2 inches in diameter.
Sanded to 600 and finished with Watco brand Butcher Block finish.

Again, I get some scraps of wood from various places so I don’t always know what wood species it is, I would like to know, so I can get more of this stuff. Please let me know if you can figure it out.

Greg, I did this whole thing on a lathe. So the outside edge (outside of the grove) is about a 1/16 thicker than than the main flat area of it.

Thanks for that. I looked at some wood database websites and their description of sapele matches up pretty much exactly with my experience with the wood. I think that is right.

That platter looks amazing! The wood has beautiful grains and the finish sets it off. Great work!
