I have applied for a grant from Enterprise nation. I am looking for 500 votes to gain £500 to upgrade my equipment in order to go full time pro and apply for the Registry of Professional Turners. I'd be grateful if you could log in and vote for me here.

Sorry for the missed couple of days (just in case anyone does actually read this and noticed) but my connection is erratic to say the least and some evenings it is bedtime before the image has managed to upload. This is the last of the bowls so as someone said. "Now for something completely different.
 
Sometimes a bowl can be something completely off the wall like this one. Made from goodness knows what wood I couldn't resist trying to make something from it though the original piece of wood was really scrap firewood. Glad I persevered though. I is approx 9" total width with the bowl about 5 " diameter. Again it is practical but also highly decorative.
Next week I'll have a look at some other types of turning. Not sure if anyone is actually folowing me as I seem to get few comments. Thanks to the ones who have.
