These are drop-dead gorgeous! The ring master is a nifty tool.

I have no idea what a ringmaster is or what it does…but you sure produced some awesome results with it…

Those are really nice. I bought a Ring Master about a month ago and so far have made 42 bowls…and some I think I can sell..others go to family and friends. No doubt you have been playing with your RM for some time. I was just talking to a friend in NC about making vases,,something I want to try…now I know I have to try it soon. How long have you been playing with the RM? Thanks for sharing with us

FYI here is the ringmaster website for those who, like me, had no idea what a ring master lathe was prior to reading about this project.

Beautiful….......especially all 3 presented together. Incredible contrast and compliment to each other.
Very well done!

here is another source for ring master I Bought mine from them years ago good support with attachments you can order to the ring master by itself an attach to your lathe that lowers cost an make your lathe more versatile they can fit it to just about any lathe

You seem to have mastered the Ring master much better than I have.
