Really a nice opening. Since you have turned a soapstone bowl for your peacepipe, we know you can turnstone, but the only soapstone I am familiar with is the soapstone I use for marking steel, and it sure does notlook like that bowl. Thank you for sharing this wonderful looking bowl with us, but could you please give me/usjust a little more information? From just too damn curious.

I never knew, or I guess thought, that a lathe could form stone as well. That’s officially my new thing I’ve learned today… and for that I thank you.

I have people ask me what can you make on a lathe other than a bowl?....I say to them you are only limited by your imagination the lathe is the only tool able to remanufacturing itself.
