Here is a 12” x 4 1/2” with the walls 3/16” thick Cherry salad bowl that was requested by my oldest daughter.

The top is a little thicker due to the beading and band I put along it. Makes the top 5/16 thick alittle over 1/4

Nice looking bowl. I’m working on getting sides thinner but I get a lot of vibration off the tool.

I’d say your daughters request gave you the proper motivation. That is one very fine bowl!
