Very nice job, Roper! I’m especially envious of the way you mastered the inside cuts. 9” deep is some serious hollowing. It looks great.

Natural edge bowls are deceptively difficult. This is a beautiful piece.

What a beautiful piece. I have looked at your other projects and very nice work!
Roper thank you for taking the time to discuss lathes with mer personally. That was a very nice gesture to call and help me through my research. I am that much closer to deciding what direction I will go so I too can turn these wonderful vessels.

Thank you, and I may be calling/messaging you again!
