    Rice for two.

    Over at WTU, Curt Fuller gave us a challenge. He wanted us to make two rice bowls and two sets of chopsticks. Well this is what I came up with. As you can tell, there flame box elder, and walnut. Finish so far is 2 coats of BLO. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks guys, but as Vaughn and Jim knows, there's some top notch turners over there. My only hope is getting in there before the real turners show up. O the FBE came from a guy down in TX, and the walnut was what I had left from a guy up in that cold part of the country. Yep you Larry.LOL

    Stunning, great choice of woods and very well executed.

    I especially like the chopsticks. May I ask how you joined the piece together on those?
