Ron, Nice vase. By the looks of it you were lucky to have it hold together. Lots of careful turning!!

Really nice work Ron, the Carter hollowing system looks the goods. Like your work with the dyes.

Please do a blog of mixing dyes that way.
I am going to be putting a guitar kit together soon, (for my own use, I’ll sell my other ones), but I want a mix of colors like that using a dark reddish mahogany and a orangish counterpoint.

Dallas yes I will in the next couple of days. Need to get it together before I post a blog. Bob Collins yes I have been using the Hollow Roller before it came to market. Carter has done a great job with this product.

Excellent Ron…your use of colour dyes to enhance the beauty of the wood is exceptional, always a joy to view your work.

Just beautiful. I love your work.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
