I have been practicing carving wood dishes from juniper. This is my latest attempt.

Quite nice.
Juniper is a well kept secret. Now, your beautiful dish has let the cat outta the bag.

Nice job and very beautiful wood. To bad we don’t have any wood like that here in N.W. Kansas. The closest we have would be Eastern red cedar, but still not as attractive or designed like yours.

I use juniper a lot to carve my funky boots. It’s a beautiful wood and easy to work with. Nice carving. The Bootman!

A unique and interesting piece very well done.

I can see it with wrapped candy as a center piece on a holiday table!

Beautiful dish, I like the natural shape and colors. What type of finish did you use?

Thanks for posting.
