Default Dizzy Bowl #24. My Best One To Date

Finished this one off this morning and it turned out better than I expected .
Padauk ,Black Walnut , White Oak , Bubinga . Birch , Maple . and both red an brown Zebra wood .
12" diameter by 7 1/8" tall.
Sanding sealer followed by multiple coats of high quality gloss lacquer .
Hundreds of people on Facebook keep telling me I am way underpriced so the one I posted yesterday on half a dozen groups there is now $190.00 and this one will be $225.00 when I post it there right after posting this latest one here.

If you sell them for $225 and are happy, me too. If you start selling more a price creap could definitely be warranted. Superb work

I know they are some listed by others between 600 and even over 1000.00 on some sites but they probably have to wait for years to get that price . For me I have to sell then at a price that will buy me more expensive exotic woods and cover the cost of equipment and accessories and shop supplies and general overhead. I make zero profit on them just like I used to and many still do on their pens . A price of hourly wage doesn't enter the picture .
I just like making them as a hobby. I sold that one day before yesterday for $250.00 prepaid delivery .
