Thread: Plate or Platter

    Plate or Platter

    What ever you think is fine. About 11 inchs by 1 1/2. Hard to see that it can hold anything. Looks kind of flat. Finished with AO. Not buffed yet. This is the last for a while. Now it's time to start some new projects.

    Well, whatever you call it, it looks real nice. The wood looks like it's got some neat figure in it.

    That'll hold anything you want. Just pile it up like a Pyramid.

    (Wasn't funny enough for 's.

    By the way, outstanding lookin' piece.

    Looks like it'd make a nice tray for appetizers or something.

    Can't help but think it must be kind of tough to turn something that flat

    I'll bet it's not really flat, but the pic makes it look that way. Getting a smooth inside that follows a big sweeping outside curve like that is also pretty challenging. (I really like the shape in the profile pic.)

    Ahh, Well, Of course, not flat.

    I guess what I meant was that very shallow curve, same on the inside and outside... (Which is what you said much more eloquently! )
