These were two of my original attempts at turning square bowls and have been stored away for the last couple of years. Did some piercing in the corners of the first, and carved the lid and added a finial. The second just scored a lid and finial. I have always had trouble sanding these without banging a finger or two so I dimpled them both. Pictures 5 and 6 is after and before of a 8” bowl pulled out of storage and I just practiced some piercing on it, won’t win any prize but learnt alot.

Wow. Those are just beautiful!!!!!. You are a master of that art!
The nice thing about those bowls in storage is that they are dry and don’t move any more!!

Thanks for show us these gorgeous pieces!!!!!!!!.............Jim

Bob, you’re having just tooooo much fun at present. Reckon you must have a bed in your shop at the rate youre turning them out.
Is that gold paint on pic 1 & 2 or just the flash?
The colouring on both tops compliments well & adds lift. Nice job Mate :))

Old turnings are great to play, lots of wood left on them. Not gold paint Pete, just how the shellax mix turned out, another learning process under way.
