Thanks for all the comments fellows. I did get a chuckle from JohnInTexas comment on the DNA.

I am happy if the tips help or inspire others.

Closing my thread. I took the platter to my local woodturning club meeting this week for the "Show and Tell" table. It was well received. A number of people stopped me at the end of meeting to say they really liked the platter.

The one tip I forgot to include before was from a member of the woodturning club. Sometimes it is easier to put the small sander pad with e.g., scalloped discs in a chuck on the lathe and hand hold the wood.

I was having a difficult time with sanding the underside of the wings. Rather rough from the turning. I remembered the tip, put the small disc sander in the chuck. It was a lot easier to sand the underside of the wings.

The final pictures after applying walnut oil.
