Chip & dip bowls
The prototype was made with a plunge router in maple and after going through several bits I switched to cherry for the production pieces which were given to family members one Christmas. I used a food-friendly, non-toxic finish on this one. The small porcelain cups are readily available at most house wares stores.
This was my first furniture piece that was built to hold my TV, stereo and CD portfolio. It was made of solid red oak. After dragging it around in several moves it was donated to the St. Andrews Church rummage sale in Marblehead so not sure where it is now.
