This is continued project/post from 09JUL2018, where I posted small Peanut acorn bowls. Now I present large acorn bowls, also for various snacks. They were made of walnut and oak, finish food friendly wood oil. Inner diameter 18cm, depth 25mm. Inside I turned them. There is a 2nd photo, where I glued the back with hot glue gun. Outside shape I cut on bandsaw. I rounded outside bottom edge on router table and sand all on various stationary sanders.

Always variety and great ideas. Try a dog dish, might go over big to sell. It would be one fat dog, or a cat dish. I might even try one.
