Made this on Super Bowl Sunday. 10” x 2” tall. Love these colors. Made from colored plywood. About 10 coats of minwax lacquer so far.

Will be used for serving chips, pretzels, tortillas, etc.

A very unique bowl, Bob. Where did you get the colored plywood?

Oh yeah! Bring on the chips! It wasn’t much a game though.

Good job on the bowl.

Hi don, The wood is from keystone sporting arms in Milton, Pa. They sell gun stocks as their main business but also sell cut off pieces of their scrap wood. Check their web site for how to contact them. Ask for the woodshop when calling. Bob

Nice. Looks more like pottery than wood.
