Artist's Note

"I enjoy turning highly-figured wood. My favorite is Acer macrophyllum (bigleaf maple). This platter is turned from a particularly well-figured piece of "tiger" maple, which turned beautifully. It is finished with multiple hand-rubbed coats of Tung oil and urethane brought to a soft satin sheen. The stand is included."
