Harbor Freight has a number of abrasive wheels for the angle grinder for $10.
depending on the hardness of the wood, they will work fine for your project.
if you intend to do many, you may want to invest in the more expensive models
such as Kutzall or King Arthur for $50+ each.
all depends on how you want to profile the depression: flat bottom with angled sides
or the massive rounded out depression with gentle sides.
with any of the designs you choose, you can make jigs to make them all consistent
in size, shape and style.

and there is also the “Cordless” model if you want to go the Old School route.
