    Turners are generous folks

    My friend Phil made me a popcorn bowl. Here is the proof.

    OK, now that that is out of way, here is what the bowl looks like, top and profile. It is a pine of some sort we got at the turner's club meeting a few weeks ago. He 'finished' it with Mahony's walnut oil.

    As usual, his work is superb. I am doing my part by carefully breaking it in.

    Once or twice a week.

    Very pretty bowl, and apparently a very nice friend.

    I know Phil is a nice guy and a great turner. However, I cannot help wonder---when your eyes are clear up in the cloud layer, how do you see any detail way down there on the lathe?

    Everything I have seen of Phil's has been great; he is a talent.

    Enjoy your popcorn and dental floss,

    He is tall, isn't he? You should see the height of his lathe. I need a ladder to stand at it! He is also a wonderfully generous guy and one of my very best friends.
