These are some smaller 7” bowls I turned from left over wood, the bases on the first four are the cores removed using Dick Struessie’s bowlsaw. These are fun projects and take the boredom out of straight turning.

Nice looking bowls Bob.I like the asymmetrical wood pieces on some of these. I noticed something when looking at some of your old projects, eggs seem to be a motivator. After carving the angels, didn’t see anything from you for awhile, then you put together the eggs and toast carving for fun. Didn’t see anything for awhile again, and you put out that bowl with the “eggs on the side” look. Seems to me that if one wants to get you going again on your fantastic projects, they just need to treat you to a Denny’s Breakfast Slam :)

Nice to see you posting,

Great bowl. And a great way to use up those smaller scraps.

Keep it up.

G’day David, a kick in the butt would be a better motivator. Have lots of unfinished projects going but never get around to finishing them. The angel project was money and that is always a good motivator.
Should have some done by next week. Thanks for the comments Jim and Scrappy.
