    Maple Platter

    I've been a member for some time, but, I think, this is my first post. This is a 17" Maple platter finished with Dr Woodshop Walnut Oil.
    Thanks for looking

    Good to see you post this one here, Nate. That's a beautiful piece. One of these days I need to get over to your side of the mountain and see this one (and others) in person.

    Thanks all for the overly kind comments!

    Larry, the was the end of a plank, so I'm guess this is probably moisture leaking in over time. I did notice there is some burl, spalt, punkiness and curl. Picked it up in NC before I moved to NM.
