Exploring some new ideas and shapes. Seemed like a good use for a piece of Walnut crotch burl that had been in the shop for years. Also, used a piece of what I beleive to be Honduran Rosewood that I found in the dunnage pile out behind the local Lumber Liquidators. And the last was made from a piece of Snakebean or Pau Rosa that was given to me by a good friend. Roughed out on my cnc router and followed up with lots hand finishing.

Don’t know what they will be used for but they sure look nice.

I would market them as candy dishes or key dishes. Something for the table right next to the door to drop your pocket contents into. They are beautiful. Nice work.

Nice design… it shows the wood even if the bowl is full.

Great looking project built with some fantastic looking wood. The walnut is fantastic. I’d love to have the rest of the log to work with!
