    The save

    After you all forgave me for saying bad words at the blown bowl, here is the save. It was donated to the local hospice for their yearly auction.

    Dave looks like a nice save to me. Congrats.

    Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

    Dave, I really like your save. Reminds me of a 3 month long, very heated discussion on another turning sight, involving plagiarism of others work. I did follow it closely, however never chose to get involved. It got so bad that I thought about placing a patent on the hole in bowls, so everyone would be forced to only turn plates. That would put an end to who is stealing who's bowl designs.

    Any who- you did a very nice job, I am sure the winner of the auctioned piece will surely enjoy it.

    Bill, re: the "plagiarism of others work" discussion that you mentioned was silly in my opinion. Considering the number of turners and number of years they have been turning, I can't imagine that there is a shape not yet turned.

    Way to go Dave. Funny how the damage is no longer even involved. Looks like it was meant to be that way.
