Very nice pieces. I like them all. What's the total thickness on the square piece?

I really like number 2. Is it really egg shaped or is that just camera angle+bad eyes

I like them all. I would love to see some of your other turnings. These are spectacular. Awesome work.

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

Nice work. I really like the shapes. I think #2 is ash, but I'm not sure what #1 is.

the square is under a 1/4 inch i used to go thiner on my squares but ive started to like my pieces a bit thicker i like when i can feel the weight of a piece it feels more hand made ive seen and felt some work done by a guy that uses an auto lathe or a cnc the one that the computer does all the work and it was thin and wieghtless. me and a friend used to compete on how thin we can go but thats the only time i go real thin and yes the 2nd one is egg shaped im drawn to that shape for some reason
