I started a new series of plates/platters for 2019. This particular one is made from Maple with several colors of European dye enhancing the wide rim, reminiscent of Fall leave colors. The center portion has a raised edge where it meets the rim, and is left the natural Maple color, like the back of the plate. Would make a lovely piece for your living room end/coffee table, or as a server of very special hors d'houvres. Sanded smooth with food-safe finish.
