« Part 44: ... Using the Cole Jaws Part 45 of My lathe journeys. series Part 46: ... new rack for the lathe tools. »

I really like the way the colors of the maple and cedar compliment each other. So here’s a couple more that I put the final finish coat on yesterday. Each of them is approximately 9.5” across and 3” tall. I’ll be sending these to my daughter and she’ll take them to the “Arts & Craps” fair next weekend.

And I dont remember if I posted this one yet, but it REALLY came out nice. It’s cedar & pecan. I left some of the chainsaw marks in the pecan and extended the cuts up into the cedar with my ROS for highlights.

Those are b-e-ay-yoo-teeful, Joe. (Yeah. I’‘m fluent in Hillbilly.) Mebees it’s the lighting, but, the Cedar in the first one sure looks an awful lot like Padauk, dunnit?
How’d ya get to #45? The last one I remember seeing was #43. Did you lose count. That’s okay. You’re getting into some pretty big numbers, now. I understand.

You said what I was thinking and not game to say as Joe’s bowls are as you said beautiful and I couldn’t do such top work so I couldn’t be so cheeky with my comments…..
Mind you, I’d never ever let any dog have a bowl that good….
I’d prefer to see one on my mantle…..

Gus, guys. No offense meant … and NONE taken!
And yes, I did start it ! I “fired one across John’s bow, and he fired back”

ALL of this is all in good fun. What’s that old saying? ” If we cant laugh at ourselves, yadda, yadda.”

And hey, Thanks to all for the nice comments. I still feel like I have a long way to go before I’m any good at this, but you guys are making me feel like I’m getting better all the time!
