Very nice design, simple but dramatic, excellent choice of contrasting woods. Nice finish work, too.

That is really nice. The shape, the wood choice, the routing…. The whole package.

What kind of finish do you have on it?

Very nice project, I'm sure that this will be useful and like Schmidty said, it should be the "talk of the party". You found that beautiful curly maple at HD? Must be some different than my local HD's; I once found a nice curly maple board at Lowes once but have never found much in the way of good hardwood at Big Orange. You did a wonderful job routing the cavities for the dip bowl and hors d'oeuvres.

Nice work. Please keep posting your projects; we're all interested.

Giving credit where credit is due, Closetguy makes and sells these and I believe (correct me if I'm wrong closetguy) he designed them. He also posted his jig in the responses there to show how he did it.
