    Steve,
    Excellent job. It came from the heart I'm sure he would love it.

    Rookie or not, I think you did a great job on both pieces. As Chuck said, they came from the heart, and that's much more important than fancy turning skills, IMHO.

    Steve - what everyone here has already stated - it's not the skill of the turner that makes the piece - it is the emotion that the piece brings out in everyone else! Outstanding vase! I am sure your son loves it! Thanks for posting!

    Beautiful pieces... I like hickory best and the usage of it.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
