Just amasing. Way out of my league! What for lathe are you turning these on? Keep them coming. Ever consider a blog on selecting, handling, drying your woods for these wonderful vessels? I would not have the least idea on the amount of work you have to be doing on these pieces. Thanks for sharing.

The post looks great with 3 different style bowls and each one is breathtakingly beautiful! You make it tough for someone to try to match your quality. I do try! Love your works.

Like all your pieces they look great, you manage to get colours that really suit the piece. They look good grouped together too.

excellent work once again Joe.. . . Can you tell me. . . . How you combat cracking and movement? . . . Or do you just do a great job of hiding the cracks?
