This piece was an experiment to play with my newly restored radial arm saw (see my other projects). I read in a book that you can make a dish shape by tilting the blade and spinning the motor while gradually lowering into the workpiece. It seemed like a dangerous maneuver, with no blade guard, and no way to collect dust. As the motor spins so does the direction of the shooting dust. It was a mess and I am glad I lived through it. But it was fun anyway. This is what I came out with after I sliced up the dish, (ripped it into strips) separated the parts, and reassembled it. It is zebra wood with purple heart "feet". The style was Asian inspired. I use it to keep my keys and wallet on.
