    Olive Wood Bowl

    Here is a olive wood bowl I turned and finished with Waterlox for my friends son who was ordained a priest last year. So this is his communion bowl for his first anniversary. It is 8 1/2" across and 2" deep.

    It is beautiful. How do you use a communion bowl? Is it like the communion cups?

    Thanks Vaughn and Pete. The communion bowl holds the hosts or broken bread. It is part of our Mass. As people come in they will put a host or bread in the dish so when the part of the Mass comes around where we partake of the bread there should be one for everyone who comes up.

    Beautiful bowl Bernie.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
