I’ve been turning since last Thanksgiving, and finally decided to try using a recess cut and internal jaws to turn a NE bowl. Significant pucker factor, but I am pleased with the result. This was an oak tree outside my brewery that was damaged by a recent storm.

Really Nice!

I like the shape and how it evolves from the base.

Wait a minute … you have a BREWERY?

Nice piece … a few sips of a well-crafted brew (after you are done turning for the day) will ease any side-effects of that pucker factor!

I manage Blues City Brewery in Memphis. I wish I owned it! It is the largest brewery in Tennessee. Built by Schlitz in 1970.

I’d be like Norm in the old Cheers episode where he got a job in a brewery … he hugged an aging tank and said “Honey, I’m home”.

Totally cool bowl, love the shape and natural edge. Completely identify with the “pucker factor”—I’m not there quite yet.
