This platter was made from a ca. 100-yr-old Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) which stood in a farmyard lawn in Cults, Aberdeen. Over the years the tree had been regurlarly 'toplopped' (a bad practice which unfortunately still perseveres) and its appearance had deteriorated.

A small natural cavity (bottom lhs) extents into the back of this platter (not visible in the photographs).
