I love the wormy look, nice plate! I have a few projects with the worm look if you want to check them out…

Great plate. Suprised it did not explode on the lathe. Going from solid wood on the lower left, to almost gone on the upper right is astounding. Nice use of the natural ? condition of the wood to add charector to your art work.

Keep it up.

This plate certainly has character. The wormy wood could have easily been relegated to the firewood pile but you have transformed it from firewood into a work of art.
