It’s not quite a bowl, or a tray. Maybe a dish? If I made a lid it could be a box. My idea was for someone to have a place to empty their pockets into.
It’s some kind of mahogany ( I think?) 5” wide x 10” long x 1 & 3/4” thick. The trough is 3/4” deep.
I cut 2 v shaped notches in the bottom of a board, then rounded the ends on a belt sander. After that it was gouges and chisels, rasps and files, and at least a mile of sandpaper.
The finish is the same that I used on my jewelry tree project.
I’m glad I did this, I might keep this for myself.
-- in the confusion, I mighta grabbed the gold ...
