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.

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