This lidded Cherry bowl is 8 1/4” in diameter and 3 1/4” high. The lid is 6 3/4” in diameter with a 2 1/2” finial. The lid has a Walnut ring (16 segments).

This was a salvage/rescue job. I do some occasional volunteer work as an assistant to an instructor at our local woodturning studio. A student started this piece … even got far enough along to start hollowing it, but got a few catches and gave up. He was on his way to the dumpster with it when I headed him off.

It was pretty wet, so I bagged it in shavings and let it dry for a couple of months. It didn’t crack, but did warp some, especially the lid. I’m not crazy about the shape of the lid, but he had both cut a recess to mount it on the chuck and drilled a hole for a worm screw, which limited my options.

Super recovery Gerry. I hope the student doesn’t decide that he wants it back.
Beautiful work.

Nice work Gerry. I like the Walnut ring. I’ll keep it in mind as a way to save a lid.

Between warping and being cut at too steep of an angle, the walnut ring was the only way I could save the lid.
