African Wenge Wood Man Dish (or woman)

The man dish measures 5.5×1.4 Inches. I wanted something not to big, manly with a shine, and have enough thickness and weight that if needed, I could also use it for home defense!

Turned with my home made carbide tipped tools, sanded and finished with my friction sauce.
Hope you like it!

This is a good looking piece and is nice and practical.

Fine looking Man Dish—no self-respecting guy should be without one!

Good looking bowl. Wenge sometimes can be a pain to turn, but your work shows the results are worth the effort.

Good choice of wood for your key bowl Steve. Nice size too, you sure have filled it up. My daughter asked me for something a little smaller a few years ago, for earrings and rings.
