« Part 1: Initial thoughts. Part 2 of If you knew Sushi.... series Part 3: Two in a set. »

Here is the blank of maple and purple heart… remember this is Queensland Maple and not the maple you get maple syrup from…

I have two dipping bowls and I am not sure which one will be right for the Sushi Board…

Number one is square sided and deeper…

Number two is divided into two sections and has rounded corners but is shallow..

I intend to curve the ends and using dowels attach the curved handles … maybe purple heart…

What do you think?

I am no sushi aficionado but I think the square one works better for spilling purposes. Neat board, oh master board maker! I’ll be interested to see how fast they sell in your parts. Here on Cape Cod, they go like hotcakes… Or fishcakes!!!

I like the square one better too…

Without seeing your curves on the end and the curved handles you intend to attach, I’m going to go against the consensus here and say that the second bowl might work better, pairing up the curves with a curved-edge bowl.

I personally like the second one. The first one kind of “scream into you face”.

go with the 2nd bowl. make a small recess the shape of the bowl so it will not slide around and copy the edge of the bowl for the handles should look great but thats just my .02 cents

It sounds like it will come out nice either way you do it.
You are going to make me drive 75 miles each way to go get some purple heart aren’t you?? Whats that like 220 klicks return trip?
I’xe been looking for a excuse to make a trip up to Indianaplois any how, thi will just give me a good reason to go. I’ll see if I can get my son to make the trip with me that way he can let Dad buy him some pen making stock at the same time. I’ll just make him take his car and that way I can act like a tourist and see the sites.
