Like it a lot. Knots give it character. Like the wood and the design. Good work.

Nice first bowl Pud, my first was never that nice, still have mine, keep it to remind me to do better. Your on your way, welcome to the Jocks. Now, lets see some of those eggs you were asking about. I posted a little explanation as how to turn them on that thread.

Thanks. I shall be giving eggs a try. Its a bit cold in the UK at the moment so doing more research than turning as my workshop is at about 2 degrees C.
