This bowl is 1 1/2” in diameter and 1” tall. Its made of Cocobolo and I dont believe ive ever seen a wood bowl this small before. Ok Ill admit I didnt intend for this to be a bowl it was the lid for a small ring box and I broke the base. I clamped the inside jaws a little too tight and cracked it. My wife said well thats a cool bowl. Its finished with my lands friction polish.

Since I cracked it i figured I would just break it all the way and see how I did with making the wall thickness even. The last picture is the poor little broken base. Thanks for viewing, Andy.

Hey Andy…it was an unintended mistake that led Wilhem Roentgen to discover x-rays so you may be on to something!! I think it’s cool and as usual the wood is beautiful.

Nice way to recover, Andy, but I bet if you used some epoxy on that clean break, the seam would not be noticeable!!
