This platter or serving tray is turned from hard maple and features all kinds of character. Several small knots add figure and chatoyance, while some white spalting on one side provide additional interest. A dark stain from an old maple syrup tap adorns the other side of the platter. the outside profile is a simple, but pleasant curve that fits naturally to your hand. A small foot on the bottom of the platter give a little extra lift, and concentric rings provide subtle decoration and and indication that bottom was truly turned and not just sanded flat.
