Great piece of turning Ron, like the rugged look of the bowls. Well done.

Amazing work! I have a long way to go before I will be turning anything like that! I have blown it up all over my shop floor! Did you stabilize the wood in any way before starting to cut it?

These bowls are outstanding and the wood is wonderful. They are beautiful eye catchers.

I’m with Mike, too delicate for my abilities. You are a master in getting that wood to look its best!
