I turned this bowl this afternoon from a piece of wood that my father gave me for Christmas, (he gave me three sacks of assorted unlabbled wood for christmas). I think it’s Mahogany, but that’s a complete guess.

Do let me know if you can identify the wood.

The bowl is for my wife… she kept the burned out clutch plate that nearly ended our Route 66 motorcycle tour last year and I thought it would be a fun idea to build it into something so she can keep her motorcycle keys in and be reminded of the trip.

Cool idea. And the ragged edges of that clutch plate will be another reminder of safe riding every time she reaches in and grabs her keys.

You have an awesome wife! Love the mix of motorcycle and wood. You did a great job. Ive been saving the stripped oil pan from my first bike for that type of project but no ideas yet

Great combination of wood and metal here, with the personalized touch. Nice!
