Box Elder Onion Burl Platter *PIC*

Jim Swank
>8 1/4 x 1 platter out of an onion burl on a neighborhood box elder that came down in a storm last year. This was intended to be a 12" bowl, but it cracked so bad I had to settle for this. The grain was too striking to make BTU out of it. Sanded to 400, Minwax gloss wipe-on Poly finish. I know my photography has a way to go, but I hope my turning is improving. All comments and critiques welcome.
