Very, very nice. You did a great job turning, and the finishing is awesome.

Fantastic! Wonderful pattern. Great finish. All around outstanding job. Would also like to see how the pattern was created.

Keep it up,

It is great. I don’t think anyone could possibly say anything negative about it. I particularly like the top rounded ring that has a larger diameter. What a beautiful bowl.

hi guys thanks alot for all those positive comments,its great hear other people opinion. about the design i don’t do plans or draw out design, i just look at what wood i had at the time ad work wit it ad the wood normally tells me what 2 do, then start cutting it into sizes ad glued different sizes of timber together. then i start off making a feature ring,when i am happy wit the feature ring,i just design the rest of the bowl around it. i don’t like working from plans, i like my bowls different, no 2 bowl are exactly the same,they are all different. i don’t have a camcorder ad also not that good wit technology, but i will try ad borrow 1 from a friend and make video sometime soon.
thanks again
