I have benn trying to upgrade the poor lowly “bowl from a board” concept and make it more interesting to turners. On this one i cut thru in 12 places and I think that helps give this humble form a bit of pizzaz!

Fascinating! Pizzaz is an understatement. It’s spectacular!

Very cool piece! It’s incredible what you can do with a plank of wood!

thanks you 3…it’s hard to try to do something new, and to jazz up a humble much malined concept. Add a camera that makes everything squat, and ta da you have this piece. Mmh, appreciate the link. will send you a note later today.

Something about the vertical lines finishes this design perfectly, for me. Good work, Michelle.
