I attended the American Association of Woodturners National Symposium in Kansas City recently. I watched two of Al Stirts demonstrations and was inspired to turn this piece. 2” x 11” x 11” cherry—flat rimmed, carved platter. Milk paint and lacquer finish.

Very nice, I looks like the bowl made a hard landing and created a crater.

Very nice. No chip out on the corners. The design looks like it radiates from the center.
