On this blog I post photos and commentary regarding my woodturning (and, occasionally, woodworking) projects. While my efforts to stay current by adding new photos and descriptions sometimes fall behind, keep checking back to see what's new. Comments are appreciated.

Small Elm Crotchwood Platter
The crotch in a tree - where the trunk splits into branches - usually has very interesting, and often quite beautiful, figure. I think this small elm platter nicely brings that out in this case. It measures about 9" across and 1" deep. The finish is natural Watco Danish oil.
