I think this is my favorite of all your turned bowls, Jim. We will definitely get some more of this wood on our next visit to John!

That is some beautiful wood. I’m glad you found that even better bowl inside it.

Woohoo she’s a beauty Jim, I didn’t know that the Desert Willow hid so much beauty … There are three growing in my yard … today any way. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled at the salvage yard in Glendale.
