Great looking bowls. I am with on the expense of wood. Great thing about segemented work is that you can use lots of scraps to make a very good looking bowl.

You should film yourself making these bowls. You could show it to us in little segments…

Yes, beautiful bowls like this need to be shown. I have yet to figure how this turning is done.

Oh Branch your craftsmanship is divine! Wood choices and contrast smooth. Then the shape regal. Darn I’m going to make a salad. I just wish I had one of those bowls to eat it out of so I could feel like a King!!!!!!!!!
