Sorry Young Broda..
Not an especially colourful piece of Camphor.. nice but not great.
Your turning is very well done though.
Your selection of a turning blank is less than it should be. You have a good EYE. Use It.
I may sound Harsh but only because I believe you are meant for great things,,

Thanks larry,
thats the kind of criticism I want from viewers

this bowl actually came from a large board of camphor that I got; next time I’m going to add some accents going through the wood
hmmm… maybe that rosewood i’v got sitting out there….

Broda, can you try photographing your bowls or other turning projects without using flash? The reflecting light spoils the look of the object I feel. This bowl is another good piece to your credit.

Brody, another great looking bowl. I like the natural difference in grain and color of that one. Only God can create that look ( you turned it into a beautiful bowl). Nice job.
