I turned a single piece, double bowl. A real challenge for a man with no talent, and arthritis. Several goofs are the results.

Nice! I had never even thought about a double bowl. Very cool.

Jim

I think you did a swell job. I have made 20 bowls and still goof up. I find the shakiness is part of the problem
Well done.

Marty, put those chunks in the firewood pile…they’ll be more attractive to him that way ;-)

Another 3 layer laminated piece here. It is 9 1/2” diameter and 4” tall. The grain is beautiful! Finished with the Rustoleum Spray lacquer. SOMEBODY needs to be building some display shelves for all these treasures he’s turning out (“turning” did ya get it? did ya get it?)!

Cool design! I don’t see any “goof ups” at all.

Now when are you gonna turn that big piece of maple Y’all took home?
