I turned this hard maple platter on the lathe in my shop. I then used inks to paint a pattern onto the surface reminiscent of a painting by Piet Mondrian. I applied the ink in a paintbrush fashion, letting the surface of the wood dictate the result. I then finished the piece with several coats of varnish to protect the colors and the woo. The platter could be used for anything dry, such as crackers, though its best use would be for display. A black wood display stand is included.
