    Very very nicely done. You are a class act Mr. Cello :thumbsup: :) Congratulations to the winners - enviable and life time use prizes you are getting there. I knew I was out as soon as I saw the empty mixed nut container. If it had been whole unsalted cashews I woulds have been completely in synch and a sure winner - alas...:(

    :D Cheers all.

    The little snippet of your daughter's Bach indicates she is a musician, much more blessed than this hack violinist. I am sure one of your pleasures is to play your cello with her :)

    Dan, I would gladly choose the Opinel garden model.

    Bowls, all look great. I'll take the lighter bowl with dark lines (ambrosia).

    Thanks a bunch!!

    Sorry I missed out on this Dan...how did That happen? Ah well.
    I joined the Narooma Mens Shed last year and met some skilled tradesmen and guys who make stuff. Also made friends.
    Ive not only learned a lot but had the opportunity to have a go at things I always wanted to try but never seemed to have the time or equipment...theres a lesson right there....do it!
    Anyway I chopped down a 50yr old Olive tree for a lady. I took the timber and tried a bit of turning...as it was still green it cracked...the good news is Ive still got some big chunks seasoning away under the hoose.[​IMG]

    Great job Dan, and congratulations to the winners! Amazingly, the jet stream seems to have brought us incredible warmth down from Canada this year.:)

    Hi meako, sorry you missed the chance on this one my friend.
    I remember you mentioning a while back about the olive wood you had gotten and wood turning.
    The seasoned wood should be good for smaller turnings :thumbsup: but I never tried it myself.

    I once brought a ton of apple wood from someone that had cut a tree in his backyard.
    I found out later that apple wood is notorious for cracking and finally gave up trying to turn it.
    It burns very nice and hot though with a sweet smell :D

    Thanks so much every one for the kind words, I really appreciate them.

    The Porch is indeed a welcoming and friendly place :thumbsup: :)

    Here is a little video of a younger self ( about 10 years ago ) doing a live edge bowl.

    I mostly self taught myself with you tube's help lol so some of the techniques shown are not optimal let's say ;).
    (I did get very useful feedback from experienced turners whom I showed it though :thumbsup:)
