Another great bowl. Really like the way you use the grains. What hollowing tools do you use?

joe. nice piece, love the grain, a gift from nature. even though what you do with dyes and color is amazeing and inspireing im gratefull to see you turn something and just finish it naturally. even though you used tinted wax it isnt overpowering and enhanced the grain of the wood. im new to lj but i have gone back and looked at your work, funny thing is i like your earlier pieces more because of the natural wood look, but thats just me! dont stop what you are doing your work is beautiful.

The hollow form has a wonderful warmth and lightness to it. Wonderful use of grain. Great job Joe!

Great piece what lathe are you using? I was interested in buying a Grizzly lathe, until I read your review, and now I am a little bit nervous about it. I was just wondering I have about $800 to spend, and I liked the price and the function on the grizzly. What do you think? Also I read you are from Illinois, so am I. Are you in any local turning clubs. My wife’s grandfather, told me of a woodworking club he was in 15 years ago, and thought there might be one around me. I am from around Champaign.
Anyway, great piece I really like the natural finish.
Keep it up

Hi Joe like the form and the only comment I have is the the foot may be a bit to wide.
I am making this comment after zooming and drawing in a smaller foot with white board makers on the screen
