the other day I was lucky to get a few blanks and one of them was a maley bur 16x1" so had to turn a thin platter. this was harder than I thought as with it being thin I had to fix a chuckling point with hot melt glue. her is a few photos of the finished platter. all comments welcome.

I think that hot melt glue is the way to go with such a thin piece. And as always Dennis a well turned and finished piece, you have certainly brought out the grain in this one

thank you Derek. it was a challenge as always with thin and wide turning. the other thing was it was really dry so splintered easily. I have another this size and am thinking of making a wall plaque out of it what do you think. I think it is a burr but not a mela burr.

Great bit of work there Dennis - you're a lucky boy!. I had a tiny piece of mailee burr ages ago and managed to make a coin tray. Nothing like as spectacular as your 16" platter. I love it.
