Nice hefty cedar one. This one left a mark on me when it came off the lathe while finishing up the bottom. Caught me square in the upper lip. Fortunately it survived unscathed.

My first attempt at an emerging bowl. I like the idea but I'm not too happy with the way this one turned out. It's a bay burl and I was hoping for something a little more spectacular. Sanding bay is difficult enough, but to try and sand a piece as irregular as this while it spins around is very difficult!

I finished a medium size pine bowl and a rather large maple bread bowl today. The bread bowl has been in the works for about a month so I'm glad to finally have it done.

Have any of my fellow wood turners tried crepe myrtle? I think this stuff is about as hard as hickory! I'm still learning to use my new Robert Sorby's hollowing tool and I am wishing I had started with a softer wood. Any tips or suggestions are welcome.

Crepe myrtle vase/pencil holder/whatever. I love the curly pattern in it. A friend gave me a pile of this and some of it is about 9" in diameter. I can't wait to see what some of the bigger pieces look like. This little one will be a thank you gift for the wood.

I found some great figuring in this piece of #redcedar . One of these days I am going to figure out how to get a lid to fit like George @from_the_tree . Until then, this will do. It's my best fit yet but I'm still new to this round box thing.

Beautiful work Michael! I got a 'plate' at the Powwow and mentioned I needed to get a couple other gifts for upcoming wedding presents! My friend and I walked back to your 'booth' Saturday nite and you were already gone. I loved the bowl that you could still 'smell' the pitch. What days are you available to let me pick out a couple more pieces? I may ride over to Folkston next week! Let me know -- Thank you!
Nice work!
great work all of you. I just saw this page today. I love the chairs....they are awesome.
I am so proud of u all.
With 2/3 of us in high school, and band, and the other 1/3 of us on the road 25 days every month, we won't promise a quick turnaround, but we want to build something for you. If you can draw it, and it will fit in the back of a pickup truck, we can build it. Let us know what you need built!
