That's the best looking fog wood I have seen in a long time!
Excellent job on the yarn bowl and the bottom embellishment just adds that special touch!

Great looking bowl. Do you cut out the slot by hand?

I am going to guess it was all hand work. Very sharp!....as was his carving chisels.

Default Story Time!

Once upon a time, there was this guy who went by the name of Glenn.....a story teller of sorts he was.
I remember the time...not long ago...he spun us this yarn about some old piece of wood he found on the ground...of all places....Well,....his story is that he took this piece of wood, he found on the ground, and did indeed spin it into a bowl of some kind!
Not sure if all the story was totally true but as he tells his stories, I am sure he was stringing us along a wee bit!....well, maybe a more....a yard for sure!

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I'm no poet
and neither is Charlie!

I agree with Charlie about the bowl and probably about the wood. He may not be s poet, but he's a pretty good story teller.

Thanks for the kind words, the slot was done by hand, the embellishments on the bottom were done with my Sorby spiraling tool. I was lucky with the center flower, have come close but have to keep trying to reproduce it.
