    "Plain Jane" Cherry

    Just a "plain" bowl here...nothing distinguishing about it, except that it's the first item I have sold. If I can sell a few million more that would be a good thing. <cough>
    9.5"x3.5", buffed Danish Oil finish.

    Nice work Mark! It may be plain, as you stated, but really admire the finish and clean edge.

    Nicely done, Mark. The curve looks pretty perfect to me.

    It may be the first sale, but I doubt it'll be the last.

    Mark - congrats on your sale! I love working with cherry and the form and color in this bowl tells me why it sold! Very nice bowl that will only get richer in color with time! I am sure this will be the first of many sales for you! Very nice work!

    Beautiful "plain jane" as you call it. I would call it much more than that. Congrats on your first of many future sales.

    Nothing distinguishing about it except the PERFECT form, beautiful color, fantastic grain, wonderful execution...

    Other than that, it's OK.
