Here are four Ambrosia Maple platters. They are 16 inches in diameter the overall height is less than 1 inch. They are made from one wide piece of wood, no glue ups here. The top picture shows two platters made without center inserts and the bottom picture shows two platters made with center inserts made from 3/16 inch thick green marble which is 6 inches in diameter. All four platters were made from the same long board.
The discoloration that you see on these platters was actually caused by the Ambrosia beetle and not a dye job by me. They cause some really neat colors don't they? Which way do you like best? With marble centers or without?
