    coin tray

    This is a tray i just finished for my middle son. Spalted maple wing bowl. The cross is purple heart. Size is 11 3/4 x 2". This was something i've been meaning to try, so i just got out there and this is what it became. All c&c welcome as I'm not sure about it.

    Thanks guys. Wasn't sure about putting the cross on this, but i really wanted it for him. He has gone through a lot in his 27 years, so thought it was appropriate.

    Did you do the "micro" turnings for the cross?

    Ver very cool Stephen. A larger deeper version would be real great for a church collection plate especially with the cross on it.
    cheers

    Very nice. Obviously the cross has meaning to both you and your son, and I'm sure he will be passing this on. Sentimental pieces can be quite, um sentimental. Nice gesture!
