Wonderful video Bill. I don't think I could follow a path like his.
I wonder how many bowls he has to make a day to earn a living.
I know a guy who is a very successful doctor and businessman, has a huge shop with about 6 lathes. He would host turning demonstrations there for his turning club, and so he spent time talking with a lot of the professional turners who would get paid to come and do the demos. The conclusion he came to was that to be a successful professional turner, you have to have a wife with a good job. I don't mean in any way to disparage Robin Wood, he is obviously a skilled artisan, and it seems he has himself a nice life. I'm just sayin...
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
