    I like the colors and the designs.

    You should nickname your shop Williams Bowl Factory.

    You sir, have made a lot of bowls!

    Do you sell them, gift them, or keep them for display?
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I've only made about 325 so far since I got my RM in April of 2012.

    I give some away but sell most of them at craft sales . Since I started taking Credit Card payments with the Square Card reader on my smart phone my sales have more than tripled . I find them often buying three or four at a time rather than one or saying they will come back with cash like they used to but came back after I had left .

    325 bowls---WOW! It only takes 300 in bowling to be perfect. That makes you perfect and then some.

    Enjoy,
    JimB

    I sincerely hope you have had a wonderful time making these art objects.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Check out this site .

    There is tons of information about some of us that have built those sleds and using them on my Woodworking Friends site with lots of threads that are many pages long with pictures and tutorials before we got to the bottom of the ins and outs of using the system.
