    Any trees left up your way Chas

    No point in commenting really, all your stuff is done to perfection as far as I can see.

    One or two Pete: Don't know if this link will work across the pond but this is the woodland most of my wood comes from.

    Great work, Chas. I prefer the form of the second bowl, but I really like the rope rim on the first one. Did you do that by hand, or do you have some other trick hiding up your sleeve?

    Hi Vaughn, the rope trick was an early play with a texturing and spiralling tool I acquired recently, like all things offered as a "great tool" there is more to getting the results you envision than the videos would have you believe.

    Nice ones again. I like the view of the woods also. Saw some big ants in those woods!

    I really like the "rope addition on the first bowl. I have the Sorby's small texture/spirial tool but I don't seem to use it as much as I thought I would. I'll have to dig it out and give it another chance.

    The link worked, but google couldn't calculate the destination and distance from my place to there... guess a drive over is out of the question..

    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.
