Thanks for the replies. I have done a few since. I figure no better way to get out the message. You know everyone that picks up a bowl will look at the bottom. I'm grateful I heard that message one day. I appreciate all the help. Here is a few more I've done. I have almost finished the one on the lathe, it was wet and I decided to wrap it in newspaper to see if it would help the craking and warping.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
