    Cherry Platters #1,2,3

    These are some cherry platters that I finished this week. They are all 14" by 2" and finished with BLO-Shellac- and Poly.

    All comments and questions are welcome.

    nice platters and the cherry begs to be touched,, are those for some church to use for donations? look to be the right size for that. if not maybe there is a possible sales area for some pete.
