This one seems to have a good touch to the earth. Another wonderful turning!

Protect yourself from the spalted woods Joe. Very nice one. You are lucky to be able to get so many varied woods to turn. m

You continue to produce great pieces.
I know each piece of wood is unique but does the same turning pattern get boring after a while?

Joe, this is really nice. I love the grain in the hackberry. My neighbor has one that lost one of its three trunks a couple years ago. He still has some of it lying around. Perhaps I’ll have to ask him for some of it.

This is beautiful. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate each and every one.

Les, I have not hit the wall of boredom yet with my series of hollow form vessels. I plan to try some new things soon. However, these vessels have been well received by the buying public. I have ran into the wonderful issue of running low on inventory.

Money can help aleviate boredom! I haven’t found anything I want to repeat that much, even for money. I spent my career in law enforcement where every day is different so that may be my problem (-;
