This little candy/nut bowl started out to be the lowest section of a larger salad bowl. A wreck caused a change in plans so I recut the bottom, added the little feet, and added the maple rim and ended up with one of my wife’s favorites.

The base is Padauk and the body Walnut (recycled from our original kitchen cabinets) and Maple.

Nice looking bowl. It’s pretty cool to hear ‘oops’ stories that turn out great pieces.

Does it have a salvage title, lol? Really though, a great design.
