    Small square plate, maybe 4" wide?

    Neat little project, learned a lot doing it.

    The wood is Japanese Evergreen Oak which is a bit too flexible for this, and a bit soft.

    Sorry this shot is out of focus

    Sanding sealer, two coats of rattle can lacquer, will buff it in a day or so.

    Cheers!

    Nice, reminds me of a "dish" for folded Dinner Towel . Perhaps a classy soap dish, or the usual candy server or place to empty pockets at night.

    I like it and thanks for posting.

    Pretty cool!

    You know how some folks have been experimenting with a "beaded" circular foot that they then carve down to three separate feet? I wonder how a four-sided item like this would look with four arc-shaped feet? (Facing the edges? Facing the corners? Dunno!)

    Or maybe even two not-quite semi-circular feet?
