Thanks for the nod Lew and another nice grouping, FWIW, I really like the vase and wish I had that kind of vision. As for the FB thread, face book is not without it's problems but it does offer tremendous exposure and IMO the benefits out weigh the negatives. Not turning related but one of the artists I've discovered is a lady named Minisa Robinson. Check out her home page, and check out the train. Minisa Robinson She is an incredible artist.

Great post Lew. I like the evolution article, But like all of us there is an evolution in the process of how we do the same project again. I have evolved on the process of some of the BOC bowls and will post later. I am guessing that that crack appeared during drying. Nice job with the dutchman, maybe try lacing the wire instead of one stitch.

Thanks for the kind comments! Sorry about not getting back sooner, computer crapped out.


@Steve Krumanaker Thanks for the link to Minisa's site. I thought those were photos at first. The Steam engine is unbelievable!!!


@Gerald You are right. As I review what I did, I should have stayed with a single "theme". A copper lace would have had more eye appeal.


@HandyDan Thanks. I seriously considered a third dutchman but the material in the center are was really fragile. I cut the recesses for the dutchmen with a chisel. I didn't think the area would hold up to the stresses.
