    Maple Plate

    Here is a maple plate I made. It is 11" across and is finished with Minwax Antique oil then buffed. I have 3 more to make and then they will be put into service at my table. That is according to the LOML.

    Again Bernie, I really like your eye for design. Very nice and beautiful piece of Maple (my favorite wood).

    They will make quite a place setting!

    Thanks again. I am hoping I can get the others to match as a set. These are going to be used for eating. I e-mailed back and forth with Ernie Conover. He told me the only thing he uses on utility items is Antique Oil.

    Very nice turning and plate Bernie, I hope to aspire to your ability on the lathe. Just dont want to fall foul of Larry accusing me of getting the spinny disease.
    cheers
