This salad bowl is 14 1/4” diameter and 2 3/4” deep. Finished with Watco Butcher Block Oil

I glued up 8/4 walnut and rough turned the bottom layer, then glued up a round of 8/4 for the second layer. Before adding this to the first layer, I dadoed out a cavity for the zebrawood accent strip.

Wiser1934- I assume you are talking about the utensils…no router. Glue up a 3/4” blank then resaw and surface. I made a pattern from a set I got as a wedding present. Cut on the bandsaw, disc and spindle sander, and final shaping on my disc sanding attachment on the drill press
