    Very nice, John. Cool combination of heartwood and sapwood.

    John,

    Beautiful plate. Care to share any "how to's"? I'm still learning and would really appreciate any techniques you might use.

    Thanks,

    John, that is a beautiful plate. The wood is gorgeous as well. I too would like to see the back.

    That's a great piece you've turned, John. I esp. like how you took the time to orient the blank to get a perfectly symmetrical pattern: could you post a picture/explanation of which part of the log you used to obtain the pattern?

    Boy that is nice!

    Difficult to get the front so nice and flat like that, and you've done a super job!

    That is a beauty. Like the simple form and finish.

    Very nice. I likes it.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
