These are a few projects that I did for my Dad and step Mom for Christmas this year. These are both first attempts. The first one is a routed bowl (woodwhisperer and wood magazine inspired). I used mahogany for the bowl. The cutting board is cherry. My father was able to tell what the wood was by looking at it. They were both very impressed. I plan on making more of these. I had originally done 2 bowls, this was the 1st attempt, the 2nd the side exploded while routing. That scared the hell out of me. I still have all my body parts intact. The Rockler bench cookies work well for this.
