Thanks, but I’ll leave the credit to God for the wood. I just cut everything away that wasn’t a bowl. LOL

Thank you everyone… those are the last of the roughed I had sitting. I’m now roughing out more bowls… so hopefully in a month or two, I’ll be back at finishing them. I need about 30.

Well, it is a process. I’ve got 5 rough out bagged and tagged… I’ve 7 blanks sitting in the shop waiting to be roughed out. Oh.. and I do have a walnut rough out drying as well.
