Thats what I reckon, they are all beautiful, stunning in fact.
Thank you for showing.

All beautiful bowls. My favorites are the Bocote bowl and the bark edged bowl, but they are all very well done.

They look great Mark. What tool are you using to get inside under the lip?

Yeah, but which one, I am trying to make a decision about getting a couple. I was looking at Sorby, but there are some other brands and even Sorby has vastly different styles. I’d post the question in a forum but it usually ends up being a circus that way. I thought I’d ask someone who does what I do or want to do.
