Hawaii master craftsman Mark Stebbins creates extraordinary platters from Hawaiian woods. After Mark lathe-turns the ~20” diameter platter, he carves a ¼-inch raceway in the center of the platter. Then, Mark carefully inlays segments of wood to form exquisite patterns including Plumeria, Woodrose, Seeing Stars, Interlace, and Supernova. Mark is always creating new patterns for his platters.
