Well, I have the burl blank for years until last tow weeks when I decided to work on it. I added an African winge rim to the bowl to enhance and deepen it. A week later, I found another piece of the same burl and turned it to a lid with ebony handle. Finished with clear varnish.

Great idea Sam adding a piece to the burl it gives it elevation, do you know what type of timber it is from?.
We can always rely on you Mate to do something just a bit different, love the result :)
