I’m still on my kick of upgrading the humble bowl from a board concept. I have never seen a lid like this on a bowl from a board, i.e. inset. Think it looks pretty cool. (In the past I put lids on the top) I really like the black limba ..very distinct colors..the dark is all swirly. about 8 1/2 diam (my camera squishes everything..this is taller than it looks)
thanks for looking

What a beautiful piece! It looks vintage 60’s with a 2012 flair!

Oh, yeah… that’s very special. The angled grain, the inset lid, and the custom handle. Very well done!

Really nice piece! What did you use for the handle? Wonder if a corkscrew could be used? I’m thinking bottle chiller with a notched lid for a bottle’s neck, and a detachable corkscrew handle…

Very sweet! The “board” approach offers more design freedom, as well as efficient use of material. Beautifully done.

Lovely job Michelle, you have a beautiful flow top to bottom, the inset lid works a real treat & finished of with classy lifter. Obviously you preped the surfaces well before glueing as you have nice tight joints, the straight side certainly adds to the grain flow. Fabulous job :: )))

I love the continuing grain pattern from top to bottom , , , unique and beautiful! Did you use a Ring Master?
