Thread: Heres a simple one

    Heres a simple one

    Small Mesquite bowl that is only 6 X 1 1/4 in size. Started out a lot larger but it turned out to be very punky wood. Just kept taking it down untill I found a little bit of some I could do something with.

    The mesquite I received from Vaughn came already turned into a bowl {swap box add-in/gift }
    Nicely done Dennis

    Hi,

    I just read the thread about hiring workers. So, with that in mind, I will ask, "Do you have to save the punky until July 4th, or can you use it now?"

    With that, I shall leave you.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Great bowl

    That piece of Mesquite sure has some nice coloring a grain!
    Great looking piece.
    Well done.
