    I agree with Doug...that's a real nice set. Gorgeous wood, and his forms are very consistent. I've got the tools to make something similar, but I'm still working on the skills. Finding the right piece of wood is a large part of the battle, too.

    I been following Robin's blog for awhile now and I think he is truely a great turner. Homemade tools and a "cordless" lathe too. He also doesn't use sandpaper!

    yes he lets the tool marks, if any, speak for themselves. I can see that I'll be making myself a wooden porridge bowl after the hollydaze.
