hi Dennis, you have turned out some beautiful work. I really like your competition piece and I am sure the judges will too. I think your grapes look good enough to eat! well done indeed and good luck.

cheers Ian

hi Wolfie and Paul

thank you for the compliments the grape stem is an actual stem from a bunch of grapes salvaged from the bin when the wife was not looking. the competition is next Wednesday so will try and get photos of all entries and also 1,2 and third places. the bowl is made in 2 parts and then joined with 8 spindles it is sanded down to 12000 grit and finished with a finishing oil. the oil was wiped on and left for about 5 mins to soak in and then buffed of ready for a 2ND coat .this left the bowl a nice mat shean .
