I am rapidly turning into a bowl junkie

The first one is 3.5 inch Tiger maple with a CA finish, the second is 8 inch Brazilian Rosewood with a wipe on Poly finish and the third is 5 inch Hard maple with a CA finish.

If you think that you have a problem now, wait until you start double stacking them around the house, just to have a place to display them. Nice work on all three of these. Rule number one, if you have a wife, don’t let her be your best customer, mine is, but she don’t believe in paying for anything.

LoL the wife already claimed the Rosewood and Hard maple bowls, she’d have snagged the Tiger Maple but it was done as a gift.

Really good looking bowls Ron. I’m lucky, my wife doesn’t want to have lots of bowls around, except for the very special ones of course.
The great majority of mine get sold.
Thanks for showing.
