I made this piece heavy so that it won’t scoot around and can serve as a coffee table or counter snack or nut bowl. The green ring at the top is forest green epoxy resin. I cut a channel in the wood and filled it with epoxy before I shaped it, then cut around it.
10" Bowl with forest green resin ring
Finished with multiple applications of Howard cutting board oil and butcher block conditioner so that it is food safe, though it should not be filled with any liquids. Not dishwasher safe. Not microwaveable. Do not soak in water. The bowl should be washed out with warm soap and water, then dried. Mineral oil or board butter should be applied every few months.
