Maple and Cherry Turned Platter (8/2007)

Another platter from glued-up 8/4 leftovers from other projects.  This is maple with a cherry center strip.  The form turned out a bit more like an offering plate than a traditional platter with a wide rim, but I like it.  I thought I'd try the Sorby Texturing tool on the rim of this piece, and while it's ok, it's evident that it was my first attempt.  After a bit more practice with the other wheels on scrap I'm sure my next uses of the tool will be a bit more interesting.  I'm still happy with this piece though.

Woods are maple and cherry.  Diameter is about 14".  Finish is buffed antique oil.
