Yeah that was on purpose Drew :o, not! yours looks great as does all your work. The center was cut out with my Forrest dado stack, start and stop points marked on the rip fence then a little sanding and card scraper, a couple of coats of mineral oil for finish.

That's really slick!  Did you put the bent lam in before hollowing?

Thanks  Ross ,The process was glue boards together, box joint the ends, bent lam strips, remove waste from the middle, taper the bottom of each end, taper the 4 corners.

You never cease to amaze. Beautiful job Dave! So you dropped the board down on the dado stack at a starting point  like you would for a stopped dado on the router table?

Thanks Coop, yep the dado stack was set for a 3/8” deep cut and just lowered it down slow at the startling point and picked it up slow at the end point, just repeat for each 3/4” wide pass, i can’t wait to fill it up with delicious meat and cheese treats

Dang @treeslayer can you please design something for me to build? 
Looks great! If I had some good local elk sausage or something to send you I’d be proud to say that food was on your tray :)

Thanks @Chip Sawdust, I’ve made a couple of other ones out of a single board, nice looking but not much challenge, originally this one was going to have the maple ends attached with sliding dovetail joints but I thought that was too much work for too little show, I thought about using thru dovetails on the ends of this one, maybe on the next one I build I’ll try dovetails
