latest inside out platter *PIC*

>This is the latest. I still have some problems to work out. When realigning after the first turning the edges don't match. I am going on the assumption that the wood is flexing during the cut so the leading edge may be thinner than the trailing edge. When I cut the wood apart and then realign them after the 180 degree rotation, the leading edge of one point is aligned with the trailing edge of the other point. Consequently one side is higher than the other. I'm going to use thicker wood or glue some wood on the back of the next one to prove this theory either right or wrong.
