Maple and Cherry Turned Platter (8/2007)

Another platter from glued-up 8/4 leftovers from other projects.  This one is maple with thin cherry stripes.  There are several grooves on the top that surround a slightly coved rim.  And the bottom is an exercise in beads - there are 3 in total with a few grooves for good measure.  Perhaps a bit busy with the laminated woods, but I'm proud of the finished product.

Woods are maple and cherry.  Diameter is about 14".  
Finish is a mineral oil and parrafin wax mixture that was lightly buffed with the tripoli wheel only.
