This Claro Walnut came out almost prettier on the back side I’d chosen, than on the front! It is 12-1/2” in diameter and about 2” deep. I cut a small bead on the reverse to give it a bit of lift off the table top. Finished with Natural Danish Oil and carnuba wax.

That’s very pretty!

Claro walnut is one of my favorite wood, rather expensive.

Great Job!

BarbS, great design and execution on the platter. I really like the bead on the bottom. It makes the whole piece appear lighter and makes you want to pick it up and carry it.

You’ve been busy miss Barb! That looks great, I bet it was fun to do. I love the smell of walnut when working it and that magical moment when you first apply the finish and get to see the colors come alive. Beautiful work.
