First of all, I don’t like being called gay. LOL. Just kidding, you obviously have misspelled guys. But Hey, the bowl looks great and the colors look great on my computer.

Another fantastic bowl. I would love to see a video on this one also.

Keep it up.

hi guys thanks alot for all those positive comments,its great hear other people opinion. about the design i don’t do plans or draw out design, i just look at what wood i had at the time ad work wit it ad the wood normally tells me what 2 do, then start cutting it into sizes ad glued different sizes of timber together. then i start off making a feature ring,when i am happy wit the feature ring,i just design the rest of the bowl around it. i don’t like working from plans, i like my bowls different, no 2 bowl are exactly the same,they are all different. i don’t have a camcorder ad also not that good wit technology, but i will try ad borrow 1 from a friend and make video sometime soon.
thanks again
