This is a maple plywood candy dish that is 4.5” dia. and 3” high with a lid that has the grain going 90 degrees to the dish. The best way to bring out the beauty of plywood is to have a convex or concave surface and I tried to do that everywhere on this piece. My first project of the new year!
It is finished with EEE and Shellawax

That is so cool….I just don’t understand how you did that. Did you laminate several pieces of ply together then turn it? I really love the look

Jim:

Super COOL!

I love the way the lid serves double duty!
... a lid… and a serving dish! Beautiful!

Great idea!

Thank you.

Hi Gary. I just glued 6 pieces of 3/4” plywood together. No segmenting on this one. I’m in the desert and lucky to have a table saw and a band saw to use out here.
I filled the dish with fresh cracked pecans today!.............Jim

What would have topped it off would be to carry the bowl grain theme on into the lid. I like the design though. I never tried to turn plywood. Is it rough on your tools?
