    Cherry Bowl - and I'm sure of this one

    Now here's a 14" x 5" piece of cherry with some history to it. Dave Lancaster and I fetched it (along with a bunch of others) on a log run to Pennsylvania last spring. I then picked it up from Dave one Saturday morning last June and took it to my chapter's meeting where Al Stirt roughed it and demo'd some carving techniques on it. At the end of the day he gave it back to me to give back to Lancaster, who said, "Nope, it's got blemishes on it now." So I brought it home and completed the turning on it which sadly removed Al's "blemishes".

    But here's the thing to consider. It took all of us just to prep it so Chrystine could complete it.

    Here are some pics of the trip to Pennsylvania.

    And here are some pics of Al doing his demo on the piece.

    That is an absolutely gorgeous piece of art... I am mostly a purist when it comes to turning, but I am really liking these last two pieces you've come up with!!!! Cool job!

    I love it. Nice simple for with appropriate decoration on it. One small blossom on the inside lets you see the grain.

    Nice work Mr & Mrs Hoyt ...

    It has a certain Asian flavor which is delicate and substansive at the same time. I really like the bowls decorations Nice work.

    Mr. and Mrs. Hoyt, you both did a beautiful job. Love the bowl Andy.

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

    I don't know about you Andy, but Crystine is definitely a keeper. Really nice cooperation.

    This gets prettier every time I look at it. It's a great collaboration for sure.

    Just curious, is the floral painting done first and then the wood finish?
