Hey Mike,
Check out our turning clubs website and click on the gallery, then the show and tell pics. Plenty of platters in there.

Here's one i'm very proud of. 20" redwood platter with a river carved out using the grain lines as a guide. Filled with rocks my grandmother collected over her life living on the Oregon coast.

They are a bit proud. I had a blast making it, reflecting on my Grandmothers life.
