Man, there is a lot of work in one of these bowls. I noticed that the pattern ‘drops’ down to the bottom of the bowl so you really have to keep track where one layer of beads ends and add a blank square so the hexagon pattern drops. I hope I’m explaining myself correctly. It would make my eyes go crosseyed if I ever attempt to turn one of these bowls. Beautiful bowl, by the way.

Off the charts Bob.
I’m adding you as a buddy just so I don’t miss any of your posts.
You are light-years ahead of me in turning.
Beautiful work brother.
