ID:	87601Ok seeing as I've been neglecting my lathe since I started this new job. Here's a bowl I just finished for my little sister for Christmas. Every year I tell my self I'm gonna make her one and never do. Well this year she is gonna have one. The burl it was turned from came from my BIL up in PA( she lives in TX) Oldest sister still lives up in that cold country.LOL
    Thanks SteveClick image for larger version.
