Very nice work! That third pic, makes it look like the bowl is floating in mid air.

Harrison, at your service!

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Nice work Cody man. I like the shape of the bowl. It has a very gradual slope which gives it a softer look. Great stuff. The chook pen looks awesome too. It even comes with its own drill press. I didn't even know that chooks could use such a thing. Who knew?

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Not sure actually it was just a piece of timber lying around the shop at school so I decided to have a go at turning whilst I was literally watching glue (epoxy) dry... never do fiber-glassing...

Cody,
Nice bowl and chook pen. I didn't have the slightest idea what a chook was either. I had to laugh as I was scrolling through the thread. I should have figured you were from Australia. Your language is very intriguing.
