Here’s a little ditty from a few years ago. This bowl is neither left or right handed. I traded it and a 2 other pieces for 20 figured maple bowl blanks. It was a good trade.

I agree with Debbie. I really can’t recall the last time I saw an ambidextrous bowl.

This is nice. I have said this many times but every time I see a bowl, pen or other turning it moves the lathe a little higher on the tool list.

Thanks for the post.

Well I don’t know what hand it is – but you sure made a good swap. Now you can make 20 more bowls.

Wonderful grain pattern. Three for twenty—and you get to turn them—nice horse trading friend.

the bowl in the second pic appears to be on fire the way the grain is
