    Nice work - I like the double rim, too. What flavor of oak is that?

    Not sure Mark, it comes from a batch from differing cultivars donated to me a couple of years ago, judging by the slab preparation I believe it to be UK grown, quite a dark natural colouring and somewhat dustier to work than some.

    I've been pondering for a while about rim decoration Bernie, as most of my stuff is intended to be for 'use' as opposed to just display, I try to ensure a bowl of any size has some means of adding grip to aid moving when full of fruit etc. I've been trying to get a balance between decorative and practical.

    Another aspect that may not be obvious is that I like to have aiming points for the major form contours, forming beads or coves in a piece at fixed points gives me the start and end points to work to. (it also ensures more care and attention so as not to destroy the detail)

    Great work, Chas. (Or is it Pete?) Whatever your rhyme or reason for the rim detail, I really like it.

    Thanks for the comments folks, nice not to have that smug 'shed exit' feeling dashed by fellow turners.

    Currently battling with the temptation to to have a turning frenzy and use up some of the many and varied blanks cluttering the place up or being a bit more sensible and just producing what is actually needed.
