Finaly got to the shed today for the first time in ages, gotta love Uni holidays.

The first one I tried to do something different. Its Huon Pine and i turned it kinda mushroom shape. It curves up uder the rim on the bottom.

The second one is just a simple purple heart bowl. Nice wood to turn.

The huon pine one is nice, what happened to the other one... did you spill some beetroot on it!

Difficult to choose between them, Benji. Both very well done. What are the dimensions, pray tell?
