    Something I found very satisfying early on in my turning attempts Jeff, quite practical as far as being able to pick up a bowl full of fruit etc. to move it.

    I like that one Chas. The undercut lip adds a lot of depth and it's a nice size. If I ever hop across the pond, count on a knock on your door.

    Boy you hit the jackpot with that wood, and the shapes and forms you are making in it are just so very nice!

    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.
