My Dad has been gone for over 10 years now but there is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t miss him. I’ve spent the past few days at the lathe I inherited from him. My personal way of spending some time with him and I turned out a few bowls. I’d like to think he’d be pleased to see what I’ve been doing with it. This is a mixture of spalted maple, mulberry, sourwood, and cherry, the little bell is pecan. I recently picked up a couple of books by Ernie Conover and have learned a few tips. I also learned about the late Rude Osolnik and his contributions to turning. I am inspired. Now I know that I need to get a for real bowl gouge. People ask me what do you do with all the bowls? I for one like to look at them and feel them and marvel at what God has given us if we just look for it.
