Pretty big for a Willow, must grow bigger with all the humidity? Looks good, guess I should post some of my recent bowls:)

Thanks guys! I don’t know what type of Willow it is, a few dried pieces of it was given to me. This was the only piece that hadn’t cracked too much. I used a Dremel and the built in indexing wheel on the lathe for the grooves on the lip.
