I'm a big fan of Glenn Lucas.  Some years ago I bought his platter DVD and it's really well thought through and presented which makes the task of turning one so much easier.  He's quite the gifted teacher is our Glenn and I've also just bought a pair of calipers he recommends in that DVD called the Martel calipers.  They all ow one to measure the base of a platter or hollow vessel, through the jaws of the chuck with the other leg inside the vessel.  They're a very odd shape to achieve that but really useful for avoiding the dreaded "turning through the bottom of the bowl" problem when hollowing the inside. 

Platters are particularly susceptible to this common problem because they've got to be thin to work....too easy to go through the base.

Happy new Year to all by the way.  Long time no post :-)

All the Best
Rob
