Pretty coo and great job! I have only done the most basic segmented turnings but since I just bought over a gallon of epoxy I cannot wait to get more serious!

Great looking scrolled bowl. Did it need allot of sanding? I have cut many bowls on my scroll saw but finally bought a Ring Master bowl maker. So much easier, faster and much less sanding needed.

I have wanted a ringmaster for many years but can’t afford one. It took over 5 hours of sanding before I decided it was “good enough”. One day I’ll save up the money to get another shopsmith and a ringmaster

I was in the same boat for a long time until I found a use Ring Master that really hadn’t been used all that much and I got a real good deal. I know how hard it is to afford new higher priced tools. I’m retired on a fixed income so some tools will never be in my shop. Hope you find a good used on when you are ready

Great job Nickle. Just a small hint, if you use a brighter background you will highlight you job better
