I made this for a Jewish friend of mine as a birthday gift. It is made from Walnut and I inlayed turquoise liquid inlace. then finished turning it. Finished it with 5-6 coats of salad bowl finish (for occassional holiday wine). She loved it and asked if I could scribe some lettering in it to fit with her other traditional hebrew art. So I burned in the letters. Anyone know what is says and means??

Fantastic inlays,great looking turn!
The word is pronounced Lehayim, it’s the Hebrew version of “cheers”, said before drinking.
The literal meaning is “to life”.
