Boy, you just keep turning, turning, and turning; that’s great. I have not used my lathe much at all, I’m always busy with other projects and they are not always woodworking.

Keep up the good work, appreciate seeing them.

Like the thin shape on those beautiful bowls as well as the burnt accents. Great turning on the great wood.
