    Cheese Platter

    Here is another Cheese/Chip & Dip platter I made. It is 13 1/2" across and is finished with General Finishes Seal-A-Cell and 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal. The marble in the middle is about 5 3/4" or so. Buffed after a weeks cure. I sold the other 2 I had over Christmas for $70 ea. Forgot to add that I turned the cheese knife handle also.

    I bought them pre-cut from CSUSA. They have them in this color and green. Last year they didn't sell. This year I could have sold one or two more. This one is for a customer who bought one of my vases who wanted one.

    That is very nice Bernie. I like the simplicity of the gentle outward lip. A very handsome piece of work.

    Another fine one, Bernie. Good to see you're getting some stuff turned. (Unlike me.)

    Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I going to see if I can find some more maple at least 14" wide. I am going to keep 2 or 3 of these around.
