Anticipation makes time go really slow and I’ve been waiting for this for it seems ages but realistically only a few weeks.
So I’ll explain – a while back Marshall and I were discussing our show events and we both admire the others work and I sent him one of my resin bowls. He had just then acquired a batch of black limba and was making vessels.
Marshall makes his vessels on a RingMaster just like the one I use for my bowls. I guess the big difference is that he doesn’t makwe segments and uses exotic lumber for his projects. I make segments because I detest cutting end grain for several reasons, tear out being the main. The closest I come to exoctic lumber is some of the Wormy Chestnut that I use on occasion. I’m locked into walnut, cedar, poplar, cherry and other’s including Beetl kill pine that I have shipped in from Colorado.
The pictures above are the vessel that I got in the mail today from Marshall along with one of my walnut, cherry and multi colored resin bowls. thus the title – North meets South
As beautiful as the black limba cannister is, I fear I will remain a segmented RingMaster
The last picture shows where the credit belongs
Thanks Marshall

Thanks for looking -

Well Dick, with a little East and West you will be able to set the table. The Black Limba is some interesting wood and the vessel compliments your bowl nicely. Marshall done you right.
I’m with you somewhat with segment bowls not having to worry about endgrain but I still like the mystery of turning a chunk of wood to see what it reveals.

This is pretty damn special Dick, the people like yourself encourage and share there beautiful creations.
Marshall piece is lovely, but the best is the Comradery which is fostered as a the spirit of friendship and community with woodworkers across the globe.

You’re right Jim, I’ll trade with anybody that wants to trade. My downfall is that I way better with bowls than anything else that comes out of my shop.
