It never ceases to amaze me what you turners can make. The bowl is stunning.

A truly beautiful piece of wood and a very smooth shape. No edges. Love it.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
