Subject:
maple burl platter

Mike Schwing from Md.
>18" in diameter, big leaf maple burl. Bark inclusion was very carefully inlaid with gold leaf and gilt varnish as to look like a gold vein, and touched up elsewhere here and there.

Quite a few coats of lacquer and then hand rubbed to a high sheen.

Comments welcomed and thanks for looking!
