    Beautiful Bowls Alfredo, what finish did you use?
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Good to see you Alfredo! You have the great talent of being able to reproduce a shape over and over...not an easy task!! What size are your bowls?

    Those are some great looking bowls! I am amazed at how you did the same basic shape over and over. I'm not good at doing that so much.

    Nice work, I can't imagine teak being all that easy to turn!?

    Surprised at some of the lighter grain on some of them, most of the teak we see up here has been selected/stained? to be more uniform. Yours is prettier

    The teak is not easy to turn. I have not much experience with hard Woods, however the teak Wood has been the hardest one to turn. I need to sharp my tools so frequently.

    Thank you all for your comments.
