Bowl made of leftovers of Brazilian rosewood, Maple, and Walnut. Size is 7’’ x 4’’ deep. Finished with salad bowl finish. I made this for my niece to be since she likes eating potato chip from a bowl. There wedding is Saturday. Hope she likes it.

Very nice! Like the color contrasts. Now you need to make a smaller bowl for the dip… a bowl for the salad….a bowl for the peanuts, etc.

Monte, thanks, I appreciate it. The walnut was cut from a log about 2 years ago.——————— Jim, symmetrical? That was the plan. lol I’ll take the compliment. ——————Woodshaver, you gave me an idea of putting wood chips in the bowl, I think I’ll do that, ha ha, thanks. ————————-Knothead, I did make 2 of these bowls, but was thinking of keeping one. Although, not a bad idea. thankyou

No, I meant did you glue up a big hunk of wood or is this segmented in some way that I can’t see.

Rick, I just stacked 9 pieces of 4×7’’ like a sandwich and glued them up. I’m working on doing my first segmented piece, just can’t find the time since I retired. Figure that one out.
