A couple of very nice bowls Andy. It is great when you can get more than one piece from one blank

Spectacular wood - simple form.
A winning combination!

For me this is great. A wood with lots going on, and a shape/form that is simple enough to allow the wood to shine. The fact that you got a 2nd blank out of the first is the cherry on the cake. Well done :)

I agree with all of the above and add, What a fantastic colour the wood is.
