Basically it is a bowl, but I thought that it looks like a mini cookie jar. The bowl itself, stands 5&1/2” tall W/another 2 ” for the lid, and is 6&3/4”wide. The bottom base is a solid piece of curly/quilted White Ash. There is 9 segments at 20 degrees for each ring The center feature ring is made from black walnut with black Locust triangles(Yeah,I know that they look like Yellowheart), and a band of Bubinga. The top ring is Bubinga, and Wenge. The lid is made from 16 segments at 11 1/4 degrees of alternating Black Locust, and Cherry pieces, with a Black Walnut center section, and Black Locust Finial. I used friction polished Howards Orange and Beeswax for the finish.

Critiques & Comments welcome.

Wow! Your bowl looks fantastic Don. So much going on it’s hard to take your eyes off it. I must say it does remind me of a Boston Baked Bean Pot! LOL! Just kidding around! Are you keeping this work of art for yourself?
