Fantastic work Brody. The accents really do finish off the bowl. Good job in picking accents that show off the grain too. I'd like to try that one day.

Hi Brody

A great bowl I love it the shape the accent and top class finish. It makes me jealous when I see the work of the likes of you Lonepine the hockey playing turner from the Hunter area and the young guy from the West with his jarrah platter a couple of years ago, I've been turning for twice their ages and their work would give me good competition. With young turners like yourselves the future of turning in Australia looks good.

Cheers Tony

Well done and very timely. :U I am in the process of doing something similar with a platter.

I like this allot, the form of the bowl looks great, i like how you've done the chuck recess- the finish looks good except for (and it may be a trick of the light) in picture 1 and 3 1/2" down from the rim i can see radial lines- these could be sanding lines or a build up of finish or nothing at all but its somthing to be aware of.
best wish's

Beautiful simple clean bowl... this piece has just inspired me to go and start laminating a blank:2tsup:

I appreciate all your comments

George- thanks for that I didn't notice that when I was turning. Not real sure what it is, I think it might be just a tiny bit of tearout.

Wow, great stuff Brody. Yep, those pinstripes are a great addition to a simple but elegant shape. Well done.

Vey nice Broda!!:2tsup::2tsup::2tsup:

2nd Ad's comments too.

I have a Leatherwood bowl half turned. The blank had a slight crack but as I turned it was apparent the think would split right open. I cut it along the line of the crack with the intention of doing what you have done so well. Glad to see it works.:):)

Nice piece Broda - great effect from a simple enhancement :2tsup:

Bugga! :~ You've just given me another idea I haven't got time to follow through - stay tuned!

I've been out of the workshop for over a year now because of heart problems and just deciding to get going again. I like the imaginative use of a thin contrast stripe. It shows sophistication and restraint. Given me impetus to start again.

Jerry- thanks, sorry about your heart problem, hope it gets better so you can get out into the workshop again!
