Trying to stock up for the fall shows. I only have 40 to 50 done but our first show isn’t until September – ingredients include walnut, beetle kill pine, aromatic cedar, butternut, and some precious ages old wormy chestnut.
All of the bowls are 8” to 9” wide at the top and 4” plus high. I did get a few made that are 12” across the top and about 6” high

You have been very busy, fun to cut the rings, but alot of work to completely finish them, as well as the very decorative laminating. Hope you are rewarded adequately for all the excellent work that you put into them.

Beautiful bowls and the bottoms are a real show piece in themselves.

I really like the designs you did with the ringmaster, I might need to
copy some. Beautiful.
