Continuing a platter kick, almost the last of some amazing flame maple from a generous benefactor! After the back was turned and reversed on the tenon, the ellipses shape really came to mind. Not clear in the picks, but it has a full bead at the change that really lacked definition. A little attention with a black archival fine point took care of that. Under cut the bowl under the bead for more "Don't screw up" excitement! Black knocked back and 5 coats of blue each rubbed out with 0000 steel wool on top and bottom. Finish isn't dry yet so no pic's of the bottom. Pens are and Exec from CSUSA made from Diamond wood...never again!! The other 3 are self cast resin on 2 Aero's from CSUSA and an EB from Berea. Thanks for looking!
