Your pix didn't come through, so we can't see your work. The way I get them onto the site is by clicking the "Manage Attachments" button that's visible below the "Reply to Thread" window -- then click "browse" to locate each photo to be uploaded, and click the "Upload" button (which is sometimes out of view on the right hand side of the dialog box.)
Well, there's absolutely nothing about those turnings that suggests you're new to the game. They are all very good looking pieces, and anyone who received one of those as a gift has something to treasure.
(edit ... oh, great job on the photography too ... done this before, have you?)
lol my wife works the camera but I will tell her you like the pics I have been turning for about a year I like trying new things and love the big bowls looking for an outrigger for the nova so I can do some big stuff but thanks for the kind words.
