    Thumbs up Vaughn is rubbing off

    well i got asked to take a tree down for my youngest daughter, and she has become somewhat of a tree hugger now so as i unloaded the tree chunks at my place for fire wood i found a small crotch that i thought would make a nice winged bowl,, so i had this hillbilly friend of mine, do the honors... its mulberry and i sent him two pieces so he had a chance and he told me later on that this stuff likes to warp and he wasnt sure it was gonna come out alright or not,, well from what i got today i would say he done right well and that vaughn guy has rubbed off on him mighty fine... its smooth as a babys bottom and its thinned winged,, like less than a 1/8"..
    looks great Steve.B very nicley done

    Whew, there for a minute, I thought you had bought a lathe. I need to go rest, I about passed out.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Yeah, my head was spinning there for a minute, too. Man, that was a close one.

    I dunno if you can blame me for that bowl, though. I think that one is nicer than any winged bowl I've made. Great job on the wood harvesting Larry, and Steve, you certainly did that piece of wood justice.

    OK I am back. It ain't good to do that Larry.

    Great bowl from SB. He does great work for sure.

    Steve my thoughts exactly. I was quiet stressed. Thought he crossed over to the other side. Phew what a relief..

    Nice work Steve. Larry next time break the news gently.

    Larry next time don't put so much spin on the information before you put it out.

    Other than that it looks great. How long did it take you?
