I’ve been thinking about trying this for a long time now. Today was the day. I had a 6” square piece of 3/4” Maple so I mounted it on my chuck and turned this. I think that the stock should have been twice as thick and it would have turned out much better – but it is a learning experience and I’m happy with it.

Looks good Bill. I have this on my list. It will be a learning process for me too. Thanks for the thickness tip.

That would make a nice tray for keys and loose change.

It’s definitely what I would call a “proof of concept”. Now that you’ve got this one under your belt, you can expand on the theme.

Good looking piece. I have been wanting to try this. I like your jdea to start with a small one. It is so good to learn. Thanks

Very nice shallow dish. Many uses, and great that you have gotten so far on your first one.
