    Maple Cracker/Cheese Platter

    Well had a lady came in and wanted a cheese/cracker or chip/dip platter. Forgot to take a picture of the bowl for the dip before she took off with it. It was a 5" maple bowl. She was extremely happy with it and didn't say a word at $110. It is 15" across and the marble is 6". Finished with 2 coats minwax antique oil then 5 coats of wipe on poly. Also turned the handle for the cheese knife and got a lid to put over the dip or cheese. So I have a couple of more to make that are also spoken for.

    Nice work Bernie!! Did the marble and dome come from CSUSA? Where are you getting maple blanks that big or are you gluing up? Can't wait till I get my bigger lathe so I can do that kind of stuff

    Nice platter Bernie and congrats on the sales! I used to get marble round inserts from Woodcraft, but they weren't that big. Used em for coasters!
