    Default Jarrah and ebony dip bowl mistake

    My partner wanted some bowls turned for serving nibbles to guests so I duly headed for the lathe. My intention was to make a bowl that could hold one of those plastic dip containers but looked nicer than the plastic.

    Somewhere along the line I slipped.

    The bowls width is 125mm.

    looks like you got a bit caried away there graeme, and made something a bit fancier than just a dip holder!

    Thanks guys. Now I'm steeling myself for a "that's not what I wanted, what use is that if we're entertaining?" type comment.

    Then it's time for me to shuffle sheepishly from side to side while staring at the ground.

    I hate it when SWMBO starts with the crossing of the arms and the tapping of the feets.

    I see that you let your ARTISTIC side out, too good for dips , give to SWMBO, for her jewelery, then go and make some holders for the dips.

    Stunning piece of work there. The ebony and Jarrah contrast well together
