This plate/bowl is to be given to a company that has supported our group for quite a while( they have given me a lot of mahogany pieces too)
it is made of mahogany and the stand is rosewood. it was laser burned for the letters and the logo, then this logo was painted by my lovely wife.
i usually do the stands with a cut off so they interlock, but i tries hinges this time and the opening was far to wide and the plate did not fit right. so i came with this hi-tech solution of putting a little string in between the two pieces of the easel and it works!, just watching the photos i saw that i need to sand a little better that hole!
