Wooden Dish

My dad won this object in some kind of game or contest at a family reunion. It was made by my mom's oldest brother, who used to be a professional carpenter before he retired. He makes things out of wood as a hobby now and gives them away. This is typical of his work.

I had to wait for a sunny day to take good photos. (I initially tried taking them indoors, but that didn't work out so well. Some of the woods he used have rather low albedo, and although my camera is significantly better in low lighting than the average consumer digicam, it does have limits.)
