I have been piecing this one together in between other projects, the bowl and lid are made from to seperate roughed out elm bowls I had and the knob and post are made from walnut and the bottom of red oak. I learned a lot from this project and will next time plan everything on paper before I start, but all in all I’m pleased on how it went together, this is my first bowl and lid project, so it was a good learning experience.

Very nice bowl/box. I’ve been fortunate to get some elm and love it and it’s workability. It turns very nicely. When oiled the richness of its grain just pops. Keep it up.

hi nice grain in they wood . great work with your first bowl/ box with a lid. they are not that easy to turn and get the lid to fit nice and tight and keep them from warping but they are great fun to make. i think you have done a good job keep them coming

That is one very useful utensil, I believe it is what we call a “treen” down these parts, I like the self locating lid idea, lovely piece selection of timber & finish You didnt mention the size!

your right branch, although there was very little warping, there was just enough to make the lid not fit tight all the way around. Next time I plan on turning all from one piece the bowl and lid anyway, not sure how I’ll go about this yet though, cause I’ll have two pieces again in order to rough turn them and set aside to dry and then return the rough warped pieces, also one would be warped in one direction and the other in the other. Unless I just let the whole chunk of wood dry without roughing it out first. I’ll have to find out more about this, or does anyone have any suggestions.
Also by planning out my piece, instead of just jumping in, I would have planned on glueing the walnut post to the oak base and turning them as one piece instead of seperately, but this is how we learn I guess.
