Picture 3 is the original bowl I turned when learning to do compound mitre angles, the wood is from shipping pallets and didn’t sell at the local market. Decided to practice some piercing and carving and also enhancing the wood by adding some color to the finish. Better news, I have a interested buyer but she doesn’t want to let the moths out of her purse.

Nice upgrade! Sounds like you have an interested shopper instead of an interested buyer.

Starting to “cut loose” here Bob, It’s always great to revisit a piece you keep on the bottom shelf & go to town on it. Hard to recognise from the origonal. Nice job
Hey, how are you finding the new 4000?
Hey keep that fire extinguisher handy :))))))

Thanks for the above. Branch I carved and then added some burning. Pete, the dremel 4000 is going fine, 35,000 rpm but still need to find another 300,000 before I can join the big boys with their piercing.

wow Bob, I haven’t been around here or in the workshop for a while due to illness and in my time away you certainly have made a great leap into the artistic side
Well done – I love it.
