    Rounded gets my vote, but that's because I almost always prefer curved lines over straight ones on turned pieces.

    Nice work on both of these, though.

    Nicely done Chas. Rounded for me.

    Well to me it is like this decision. I'll give you a million dollars. Do you want that in tens or twenties?

    Heck I don't care, I'll take the million any way you want to give it to me. Same thing with your bowls; I would take either one. And, I am sure glad I don't have Vaughn's straight line hang up---I sure would like his skill however.

    Great work, as always Chas.



    ps. I hope you have a VERY LONG road to travel.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    They are both beautiful, but if I had to pick I would pick tapered.
