Just had my 55th class reunion, I made 60 of these key chains to give to the returning classmates, The bowl itself was given to the person who guessed the date closest to the penny embedded in the bottom of the bowl. The bowl is made from Mahogany and the darker segments are Mahogany from Hawaii. The bottom of the bowl is Cherry. Finish is Lacquer

I bet you made your class mates happy with those Key Chains Don. Good way to strike up a conversation about woodworking. The bowl looks really nice I wouldn’t mind winning that one! Nice work as always!

Great job Don, Just have to love the Key chains.
I bet the Guys and Gals loved them.
You finally did it, convinced me to try a segmented bowl, starting today.
Thanks for the inspiration.
