    Christmas work has started

    I have been requested... ordered by the Da Boss aka LOML to knock up some bowls for family and close friends.

    This is the first 16 x 4 Mall with satin wop finish,left it thick so it can be used as a bowl and to also save allot of it

    Looks to me like turning that took some very delicate work. Beautiful.

    Great work, Neil. It may not hold soup, but the world already has enough soup bowls anyway.

    Gee, and to think I felt real gutsy turning something with a couple cracks in it. I guess I better start clucking like a chicken.

    Man, you must have sharp tools and one really steady hand.

    Enjoy,
