I was given this slab of mesquite( last shot) at the saw mill and decide that I could get 2 shallow dishes out of it if I glued on tenons first. The wood had some cracks in it but I figured that would add character. I was doing good until I was sanding the deeper one and then 1/4 of it cracked off. I made that one 1/8” wall and it was just too thin with all the cracks running in the blank. So I put it together with epoxy and finished both of them and gave them away rather that throw away all the work.
They are about 8” diameter and finished with gloss lacquer.
