If your plan is to have a plate that is finished turned dry ¼ to 3/8 thick and about 12 inch across you need to ruff turn to about 1 3/8 about 7 months earlier If it a 24 inch platter would need about 2 inches ruff for about 10 or 12 months in my basement.

The more bowl shape you put into the dish the thinner you can get away with ruffling them and thinner ones dry faster and are less likely to crack.

If you are making any spoons do the hollowing while it is green.
