    Wow Chas, they're all nice, but the wood in the lidded box is spectacular. Very well done on all of them.

    They are all very nice, Chas, but the lidded box is absolutely spectacular!

    Chas, beautiful in one word, but the top of the bill is the lidded box, very special.

    Chas, I've been turning some elm lately too. These are great. I just put the first coat of oil on one bowl that is almost exactly like the third bowl....Well Done.
