    As always, all constructive comments appreciated. (Still working on photo quality, when I have time.)

    Hey Bruce...good to see you drop by. I agree the photos could be a bit better, but those look like three nice bowls nonetheless.

    Bruce,

    They're all nice, but I gotta' say ... that Elm winged crotchwood bowl is a real winner in my book. It's got style, colour, grain .... real blue ribbon stuff there!

    cheers eh?

    Thanks folks. I hoped the Elm would have that effect.
