    That's indeed quite a bit of production. Do you have the name of the turner? (You know, the ol' credit where credit is due thing.)

    Leo is a Sawmill Creek member. Yep, he turns lots of bowls although I haven't seen him post any lately. Maybe that is why, he's busy rough turning green ones. He does some beautiful work.

    I wonder if he bowls at night for relaxation. Looks like he has had enough practice to average 300.

    Enjoy,
    Jim

    After writing the above, I went to his site. I'll bet his lathe bench weighs as much as a Cadillac. His lathe is a monster (that's monster for big, not for gross). It has a tool feed, just like a metal lathe. He can turn a bowl you (well, at least me) could take a bath in. His gallery shows very nice, very salable bowls and vases.

    I enjoyed looking at his things.
