Nothing wrong with being in the groove, it just helps boost your production! I love it when I fall in the groove, everything seems to click and you’re in euphoria! I wish I could find some Avocado wood, too cold in northern Fla for them. Nice turnings.

Great bowl. Nice shape and finish. Really like the oclusions in this.

Keep it up.

Very nice job! Where would I go to get some of this wood for turning?

Avocado doesn’t really get that big… I get all of my Avocado from firewood dealers around the San Diego area. I can get a wheelbarrow full for about $10-$35 depending on the time of year.
