Default Half way there

I brought Carole book to my long time best friend and his wife ordered 4 bowls for Christmas. I'm halfway there, still 2 more bowls to do for that order.
Don't seems to have enough time for other projects i.e bird houses, icicles, Santa Sleigh etc.
I think from now on I will keep Carole's book hidden, the bowls are too nice to show to friends, too much work for me, even if my talents are not close to the teacher.

About that talent--those bowls look pretty darn good to me! Guess you'll just have to up your price.

Default Just one more to do

Have received a request from a very good friend to make 4 bowls for Christmas, well it turn out that my wife did not have any of the bowls selected, so instead of 4 I have to make 8. Happy wife is a happy life.
Just have one more pattern to make.
Also I did the sleigh and reindeer from Steve Good, modify the candle for present in the sleigh instead.
Well enough chatting and back to make more sawdust.
Bowls patterns are from Carole's book. I cut one more ring on the 5 pedals bowl, was a little harder to shape and sand but I think it turn out ok.

Your bowls look great. Bowls take a lot of time to make (glueing sealing ect.) how do you price them? What may I ask did you ask for them?
