This is a picture of the top of the Platter. The bottom has "not" been turned yet.
That will happen when I get the Nova 1644 home, which won't happen until early May.
The finish "Wood conditioner" which consist of mineral oil and beeswax. This process is on top of sanding sealer.

Ok... in the 2 - 4 quadrant.. I see a line that seems to break the color of the quadrant.
..and sort of seems to follow thru into the next quadrant  but on a lesser level.

What is that?

Ralph, are you talking about the glue joint?

No.
The line I see is parallel to the outside of the platter..as if it was a tool line.
It's just in from the point.

It also aligns with the  marks  near the point at the top. That looks like a tool mark that more sanding might remove.

Enlarge the image to see it better.

By the way, other than that, it looks really great!! There is no way I would have the time nor patience to do this type of work.

Not that good at adding things together. Better at removing wood from a block to find the bowl inside. Smiley

Ralph, I think I see what you are talking about. We just returned from Florida and put the RV in storage, but not finished unloading it yet.
Between the bottom and the rim there is a 3/16" white ring then the area, I think, you are talking about is about 1/4" inside of this white ring.
The platter is still in the trailer, I will be bringing it home this week and take a look at the area your talking about.
As I said before I won't have access to the other lathe until sometime in May. That is the only way I can work on it. Have to go to Atlanta to pick it up.
I'll get there, just takes time.
Thanks for pointing that out to me.

Ralph, I picked up the platter today. That is light you see paralleling the outer rim. If you look at the top, you don't see that line that looks like a tool mark. If I turn the platter it goes away just as it does at the top in the picture.
Some how the finish is reflecting the light in that area.
