Different as in what?? Did you take it this far? What did you have in mind when you started? How big is it? One Piece now or two?

I’m sure we’d all like to Help You Out. But??? Information please.

I just paid a visit to your Web Site. You have some very “Unique Creations” on there, a LOT of them including the Rice Bowls and Peanut Bowls.

Unfortunately I also picked up THREE Behind the Scenes Pop Ups!! & I HAVE a pop up Blocker! The three typical ones, I Q Test, Screensaver, Shopping Voucher. OOPS! Avira Just grabbed something else I removed and now it’s scanning for more.

I’m Gone!

EDIT: I just had a look at your Rice Bowl that you Posted about 10/11 Days ago. I said the same thing about your Site that I just repeated above!! After the Scan Last time Avira picked up 3 Pieces of Maiware ALL from your Site!!


-- Hope Everyone Is Doing Well! .... Best Regards: Rick

Tie a string on the center axle and connect it to the overhead ventilation fan to pull the switch. It is a PULL OVER SWITCH HANGING HANDLE.
Rick, thanks for the caution.. I didnt open the site…

It looks lke a cut off from another project. Flip it over, bore a hole in the top and insert a frog for holding flowers.

Kinda looks like the same shape as an old punched hole paper tape reader I was messing with at work recently. The tape would slide through that U-shaped section with sensors in a row at the bottom to read it.

If you bore a hole in the bottom for any reason, it will no longer hold water. How will you water the horses then?

Twas a turning, sliced and reconfigured? I’ve been pondering similar things with bowls to make them look impossible to have been turned… anything to boggle and help stretch out the mind.
