Looks like it held togeather this time. Good looking bowl.

Wow, very nice work.

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

Well done!

That's some mighty purty wood...

If'n I'm able, I'll turn a piece of it on the morrow.

Nice looking bowl. I really like the character in that wood.

Forgot to mention that this is for the gentleman that gave me the wood.

This is beautiful.

I think it goes without saying that the first (good) piece should go to one's benefactor.

Nice bowl Sawdust,
that is some really nice maple. Tons of character. I think that's a very nice gesture to make something and give it to the person that gave you the wood.
