    couple small bowls

    First is maple burl for a guy at work. No big deal just some nice wood. The 2nd is a small cherry crotch. This is from a fruit bearing cherry. i know i should of put the first in the photo tent, but i took them last weekend and for got i had even taken them till i up loaded the cherry.
    Thanks Steve

    Great work, Steve. I like the crotch piece best of the two. Must be the photo tent.

    Very nice. The second picture reminds me of a pair of wooden shorts.

    Stephan those are some mighty fine looking bowls. I did a crotch piece just so I can say I did.
