    pots

    I hope this works.I,m on the wifes laptop and am trying to figure out how to post pics. Getting them here ain't the problem. The cropping end resizing now that's a different story.On the main puter all i have to do is go to image resizer and click on a couple buttons. As you can tell not very puter savy.Well as i got them resized but not croped i'll go with what i have.
    The first is cherry and the other is don't no wood.

    Those look great Stephen. Computers may not be your thing, but turning is for sure.

    Stephen,
    Like the design... my wife and I spent a year in Tucson and she fell in love with the indian pot designs... I've tried a couple, but don't think I accomplished them as well as you... good job!!

    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.
