I turned a cheese platter out of mahogany (stiles from an old door someone had trashed). It is 12 inches in diameter, the largest I can turn on my current lathe. The marble disc and glass dome were purchased from Craft Supplies USA. Finished with sanding sealer and Satin WB ploy. I just hope it is big enough, I think they will need to use small crackers :-) Still need to turn the handles for the cheese plane and knife to match.
The bowl is white oak and the small turning are beech, these are from the cants I get from the mill. The beech turns really nice, these are finished with sanding sealer and gloss lacquer.
