These bowls have come out very nice. The wood is so good it should be cultivated instead of destroying as weed. At this age you are doing a fantastic job. Have you got your band saw or not?

sharad- it is a shame about the timber. in many places it’s just bieng bulldozed and burned. And no, i dont have my own bandsaw…yet. I’m buying all my blanks “pre-roundified” untill I get one (within the next month or so)

Beautiful turning, too bad they don’t value the timber.

Next time you come to visit your brother, slip up and see me about some timber, I have heaps.
Well done on the turning front.
