Peter, it looks like an eye for form got passed down from grandpa to grandson. Beautifully executed piece.

That’s beautiful, Peter. I’d forgotten that I bought one of the original Ring Masters some twenty (maybe) years ago! I should get it out of mothball and put it to good use, heh? You really did a nice job on it!

Another nice project Peter, you certainly have mastered the ringmaster. Nice to see you have the grandson interested.

Beautiful wood and design… I think you need to keep your grandson stocked up with pencils and paper for more designs for granddad to make….:)

Sweet bowl! Like the shape, very nice grains and the finish is awesome. Great job to both of you!
