No weird ideas yet.

Mrs. Will bought a cheap wooden tray from Wal-Mart for keys & such that she yells at me for not using and just throwing my keys on the island counter.

This could replace that.

LOL! Aren't you a house husband, a kept man, Will? Let's see how you actually will be using it.....holding your marijuana stash.

yes, you could toss your pocket stuffs in that. we have an oak bowl i made some time ago that holds the spare set of house keys, the gate opener, and Leah's leash. right near the front door.

i would have made it bigger, if i had known you had to store all that crap in it, but that's as big as the wood pieces were that day.

happy new house, enjoy.

Drugs are for degenerates. I do not smoke reefer and I fully endorse Attorney General Jeff Session's white-hot seething boner of hatred for marijuana.

It's perfectly sized. Those keys and opener are it. Wallet stays with me.

Thanks!

i love these stories.

make something that I like, end up giving it away (if you recall, you had the choice of 2 bowls), and you not only like it, but find an immediate use for it!

i did make one other bowl a few weeks ago, hauled it up to the house to show Mrs. DAB, intending that i'd give it away in the near future, but she took a shine to it, so she kept that one.

one advantage to being Mrs. DAB: first refusal on uncommissioned projects. Oh, you like that? guess that one is yours/ours, and back to the shop I go....

Nice bowl and at least you know where your ring is.

Mine's somewhere in her jewellery box.

Dear Mr. DAB,

I really like that bowl you made for Will. Would you consider making another one? Not for free, of course, but I would treasure something from your wood shop and I have a thing for wooden bowls.

PM me.

I donít do production.

This was using up scraps. Thatís the last big piece of lacewood I have. But I have other woods, and can get more. I rarely repeat something. Might be a small, deep bowl, or a wide, shallow bowl.

And if you look back a day or two, I posted about a bandsaw box I made in the shape of a heart.

So PM me with what you have in mind. I have a chunk of cherry glued up and waiting for inspiration. Could be a bowl, could be a bandsaw box.

That bowl for Will was a house warming gift for his new house.

Which seemed like it would take forever to find.
