That is a beauty Chas. I like it.

Chas i like it two. As i don't understand metrics can you give me a idea of the size in inches. i know i should of learned this but i was pig headed and didn't want to at that time.
Charles I love this type of turning...its a beaut!
Very nice. I just have to try those one of these months. Ya I said months, the dang to do list is so long.
That's another nice piece, Chas.
Steve, I don't know if you're much of a horse person, but Google can even tell you that 200 mm is the same as 1.96850394 hands. Or if you're more into surveying, it's about 0.994193908 links or 0.0397677563 rods.

Thanks for the comments, must remember to work to the English Rule when posting over here.
Seem to be getting some sort of perverse satisfaction out of wading through the mound of offcuts I have and then of course getting the glue joints nice and tight in the bits that are left by the turning boosts the ego somewhat.
Another great looking bowl Chas. Oh and in regards to the metric system 25 mm is aprox 1 inch. It is way easier to deal with in all aspects of construction and building once you do the change, the biggest problem is trying to do all the conversions back and forth betweeen metric and emperial. We converted in the 70's and we are still having issues with it. Wife sent me out for a pound of butter. I stood there in the isle looking at the 480 g packs ( blocks) and bought 3 just to make sure I didn't screw up. Turns out one block is a pound. We still build with 2x4's and not 38x 89's
