PS. the completed bowls look beautiful! nice work!
OK, at this point, I'm happy to see them go to a good home, so I'll get a couple packed by the weekend and let you know the shipping. PM me w/ your address.

Phinds... have you ever considered donating some of your finished bowls to non profit groups for fund raisers. Most of my turnings will end up being given away as gifts or to fund raisers.

I've never kept track. It has never been an income source for me but I made a lot of bowls, platters, urns, etc. as gifts since the '60s. People love to get a nice hand turned bowl! My wife confiscates them occasionally so we have about 30 around the house.

I have been making a few to sell lately. I've probably made a total of about 200 over the past forty years, which is only 5 per year.

Yeah, I do that from time to time. Initially I just gave away all my bowls to friends and family but I was so prolific that it quickly because evident that I needed to go out and make some new friends and find new family

Hey Bret
those are some pretty attractive bowls and platters if i may say so myself! I especially like the segmented bowl/dish with the diamonds.

Cannot tell you how many bowls have turned. I have turned some outstanding bowls, and some went to firewood pile. If did not learn something new or re-learn while turning a bowl every time would quit turning them.

I've turned probably 25 to 30 bowls, and really enjoy the process. Segmented turning is really my passion, but I still enjoy cutting up a blank and seeing what treasures are inside. With two little one's around the house and a move coming up my lathe time has been cut very short, but hopefully in 6 months I will be back behind it regularly again.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

So far, I have turned 0 bowls :( Yes, it makes me sad. Perhaps, one day soon, I too will make a bowl.

Tyler and Robert, yours are packed and will go out in tomorrow's mail via Large Flat Rate box which is about $15 and I would appreciate a small contribution to my bubble-wrap/packing fund, so make it a round $20.

If anybody else wants any, say so. I saw a couple of posts on my "visitors comments" thing but I'm old and persnickety and do not respond to things that make this seem like a facebook page. If you want'm say so here on the thread.

Paul

PayPal is best: [email protected]

Oh, and I put 3 blanks in each box. One in each that definitely has some minor separations that may need some glue and two that should be OK (but I didn't examine them TOO closely)
