Rob, very nice. Just a suggestion for future boxes, put a small chamfer on the bottom edge. It gives the box a little lighter look and makes them much more pleasing to the eye for whatever reason. Think of the bottom if a Coke can.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Really pretty; nice choice of wood and nicely turned. I do like sawdustfactory's suggestion of a little rounding on the bottom.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
