Big thumbs up.
Well done.

I’m always stunned by the way straight lines curve under the influence of lathe tools. You did that, Ron. You stunned me. YAY

I’m with playingwithmywood, I puckered up when you said you were going to cut up a cutting board that I would have been proud to have made. But man o’ man, you proved us wrong. Actually I shouldn’t have been surprised considering the amazing quality of your other work. Beautiful stuff!

If I had a bowl like this I would never put food in it. It just looks so beautiful, I’ll be afraid I might ruin it.

Great piece of turning Ron, the butchers block was pretty special but you have really done it justice. Well done and thanks for sharing.

A cubist bowl. Somewhat of a contradiction in terms, but it looks wonderful.

Love it.


-- 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.
