I have always liked the Japanese style bowls and have never really tried to make one, so this is the first attempt at one.
Made from cherry and oak and a piece of copper wire from the workmen that are trying to repair the street light.
It measures 4” across and 4 3/4” tall the bowl section is 2 3/8” tall to the top of the handle brackets.
The copper handle on the left does not look right in the photo’s but I have now sorted that out(did not notice until I reviewed the photo’s)

The combination of the oak and cherry works great together .

Oh yeah, with a handle like that you would have to go to the back of the parade …

Very interesting.
I hadn’t thought of leaving an inside rim for the lid to set on. I will have to try that sometime. It would work for small turned boxes too.

G’Day Derek, The inside of the bowl looks very nice. The lid hides it but overall a very nice piece..
The wire can be modified later and not an issue until you noticed it….

This is a very cool looking bowl and not an easy piece I would guess. Very nice work.
