    I keep expecting that to happen, I suspect I'm not trying hard enough

    Very nice little funnel though, I like the shape of the inside better than the shape of the outside (disregarding the hole ).

    Allen, I thought I had left it thicker... oh well.

    Ryan, I still need to work on the transition from side wall to foot, swinging around the corner as it were. Where's my copy of Turning a Basic Bowl...

    A rite of passage, for sure. There will likely be more, too.

    A lot of folks -- especially beginners -- are hesitant to take too much wood off the outside. There seems to be a mindset of needing to "save the wood", so they end up with relatively straight sides and a flat bottom. Try to not have any transition or corner at all. Instead, envision (and make) a continuous curve from the tenon to the rim, so as to avoid the flat-bottomed "dog dish" shape a lot of beginners end up with. Think of a cereal bowl instead of a cookie tin.

    Here's a quickie comparison...

    Not something i can claim to have mastered either. Personally I find the inside the harder part and it looks like you're getting a good handle on that

    That is very funnely! Maybe it should be on "Laugh In."

    You could give the bowl to a church---After all it is "holey.

    With that I shall leave you.
    Enjoy,
