    Cherry Set

    Here is a set of three, cored using the McNaughton tool. The textured rings were done with a Sorby texturing tool. Sizes are approximately 12 x 6, 9 x 4.25, and 5 x 2. Finished with Salad Bowl Finish and buffed. This set disappeared at the show I did last Saturday.

    Great work Mark. I like that extra touch of the pattern around the edge. Have you got a closeup of that edge showing the pattern?
    cheers
