Darn lovely bowls Branch, great feature rings and bottoms. You are getting a nice finish on them. All the best at the craft show.

thanks bob you have to spend time on the finish because that is that sells the bowl
i leave them siting over night in between every coat and sand them down to 1200
before buffing them things are bad with the reshow over here nobody is spending
there money on arts and crafts but hopefully the will sell

hi patron you know the old saying practices makes perfect not quite there yet
but another 10 or 20 years practices i might get there
but as long as we are having fun that is the most important thing
