Hi John Thanks for you comments I have had this a few years and no one has ever shown any interest in purchasing it,I first saw Jimmy Clewes turn one of these I liked it so I turned 3. Maybe I will get round to posting them one day.Regards John

Hello John

I also remember Jimmy Clewes doing one of these and I tried my hand as well. I think yours is a great example and it surprises me that it has;t been snapped up.

Cheers Dave

nice piece of wood, and a favourite form of mine. Though not always in the bowl form.
