Talking Woodturning is expensive....

Hello! Been around here for a while now i haven't posted any of my pens up but I've decided I must share my KOA bowl. The bowl is 7.5 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall, I had some scary moments along the way however everything worked out! Thanks for looking!

C&C Encouraged!

Wow Chris that is a beautiful bowl, and I would say from how thin the wall is and the clean bottom this is not your first bowl. That is a beautiful piece of wood, it must have cost a fortune. Very well done.

I heard there was some kind of competition with your dad, related to this turning you did (which is very nicely done). How did that turn out?

Well done Chris. Impressive piece of wood and impressive craftsmanship uncovering the hidden bowl within it.
