Question Candy Dish needs something?

I made this candy dish and was happy with it until I glued all together. Looks to plain, so I was thinking of carving the dish edge...but what? Any Ideas?
Help is needed. Thanks

Vince

I agree once you put a finish on and put some candy in it, it will look good. Nice work

You think so? I guess I could do that first, If I'm still not happy with it, I could route the edge with an ogee or something.

candy dish

i like it as is (oiled) beautiful !....just out of curiosity...what are the dimensions? anchor hocking makes a glass dome that is 11.25 wide and pottery barn also has odder looking glass domes that are (8.5 and 13" ????) and if you just google it i came up with all kinds of sizes...also they make a small dome for Cheese plates. If you don't know what i mean? go to my album as i recently placed pics for someone else of my kitchen revamp and on my new/old cupboard is an antique cake plate with a new glass dome on it. (i paid $5 for it on clearance by-chance ) . I think your project would make great wedding/shower or any occassion gift! its truely is beautiful. julie aka creative novice
