Nicely done Roper, beautiful piece. Have your knuckles healed yet? :)

Outstanding bowl. Love the wing. Wondering like Rich, how many times did you crack a knuckle?

Beautifull shape and finish.

Keep it up.

You got that bowl to fit in that ring very nice. And the grain looks like it was made there.

A fantastic job.
