    Real nice work on all three bowls. I like the forms and the wood, and the pics are looking better and better, too.

    Stephen,
    Very nice bowls.. like the form and shape of all of them... interesting the coloration on the wood too.... my box elder is more yellow with some red flame in it.... some of it is now beginning to grey so I have woods that show the yellow with grey streaks and then the red flame....

    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.
