    First Sale!

    I sold these cherry stoppers and this cherry bowl today. At this rate it is only costing me about 2 grand per item.

    Congrats, Pete. Once people start giving you money for your turnings, it puts a whole different spin on things. As you do more, the cost per item will get down into a more reasonable number...like $1500 or so.

    Does this mean you have to turn another bowl?

    Congrats on your sales!
