The Doctor cleared me to get back to work in the shop following back surgery in Nov. My first project was the small bowl, 3” high by 5 3/4. Cherry, Maple, and wenge. Its hard to see because of the fold in the bowl but it’s the fish hook pattern. The second is and oak vase 6” high by 5 3/4. Man it’s good to be back at.

Welcome back and glad that you are feeling better. The bowl and vase look great. All the best and stick to the small stuff that requires little lifting for awhile.

I am always impressed with segmented turnings
