They both can be placed upon these board/bowls. ( I bet you were expecting a joke )
Ok, so this is a project I sketched the idea for over a year ago and promptly forgot about. Just before christmas a guy from Greece joined Router Forums and asked if there was a quick and easy way to make something like this with the router. He inspired me to think of ways and means, which I did, but in the end I decided I could do it quicker with my arbortech wood carver attachment on the angle grinder.
The oak mill ends I get for free from the Zagreb city Parks and Gardens department. They buy slabs, and mill it up to make the park furniture. The guy that runs it seems to like me and is happy to give me as much as I can take as well as even running larger stock across their massive jointer and planer from time to time when I need it.
Anyway I was surprised at how easy it was to maintain a relatively even round dish shape using this tool.
Sanding is a bit difficult as there’s a lot of end grain exposed, so in the end I used a nylon brush attachment on the drill which smoothed it out and gave it a bit of a burnishing effect.
Olives in the bowl, cheese on the board, wine or beer in a seperate glass. Enjoy !
