Here is the other maple platter I have been working on for a while. Lots of burning but a labor of love. This barn was built by my great grandfather sometime around 1890. I have a couple of piece of wood from it and also a handful of the square nails. The land has been handed down to my uncle who passed away and now his kids are selling it. I went down and got some pictures of it and the home place before it sold. Anyway the platter is maple and is 15" across. It is finished with several coats of poly.
