Sorry about the size of the photo last night (if anyone is following that is LOL) Blowed if I can see how to edit a post. Nothing seems to give me that option so you'll have to forgive me if I get something wrong.
OK where was I? Oh yes bowls. Bowls are so ordinary much of the time and when I visit craft fairs and see the ones other turners have on their stalls I wonder if any of them do anything different. Quality is usually excellent don't get me wrong but the variety of shapes and sizes is so limited and it's unnecessary./ there are so many different w\y to design a bowl and so many lovely woods to choose from in this country without buying expensive blanks and turning the same sort of thing out ad nauseum. All sounds a bit critical I know but I truly don't understand why so many turners stick to the same designs basically. Experiment people, try something different !!!!!!
