    Nice work Chas. The top piece on the right gives an illusion of nested bowls.

    Chas you had me going when i first saw that top pic. I have come to expect such good work from you it would not have surprised me at all if you managed to pull a bunch of bowls out of one chunck of wood like that. I kept on looking and looking and it was not until i looked at the second one that i realised you had me going.

    The ones i particularly like are pic 2 and 3 with the plain edges. Number 3 looks like it longs to be held cupped between two hands with some soup in it.

    Great work Chas. Thanks for sharing them.
    cheers

    Thanks for the comments folks, wish I had a bowl saver capable of slicing them out that thin Rob, make a fortune
    Three more to go out of the Yew in the 'to do' bin, then it's on to some spalted beech bits, think they are going to take a bit longer to do as some of it is quite punky and may need laminating with something a bit firmer to hold together.
