    Bowl practice (pics)

    If this picture posting works it will show some of the bowls I've been turning over the past few months. They don't hold up to most of what I've seen here.

    Cecil,

    I don't see why you have to be so humble. Those are some great looking bowls. Nice forms and it looks like you've got some nice "string drop" curves with those large ones. You could make a heckuva salad and be proud to bring it to the table.

    Great looking collection! Kinda reminds me of that movie, "League Of Their
    Own" when the commentator says "and here's Marla Hooch!" and shows
    her deep in the outfield. For some reason they didn't want a close up of
    her? Of course i'm just kidding
