I’m pretty stoked about this one.

After. Now that's better.

I am a member of a website called World of Woodturners (WOW) where members post pictures of their work as well as comment on pieces, ask questions and offer suggestions. The membership reaches around the world and counts many well-known names familiar to many of us. Today I posted the picture of the winged bowl in my post earlier about gilding. Each day one of a few appointed people select their choice of a photo for the “cover”, which is the lead picture on the front page of the blog. Pascal Oudet selected the picture of the winged bowl today and I received several very supportive comments about the finish. Much credit to Eric Lofstrom who provided the actual turning.

Membership on the blog is by invitation. If anyone is interested in being a member, please advise me by email. I will require your name and email address to send an invitation.

As always, I encourage your comments and questions, so please refer to the tag line at the bottom of the article to post a comment.

About Ed Pretty

I am a professional woodturner, specializing in gallery work, commercial work, teaching and demonstrating. I have been turning since 1958, so... a long time. I use this site to present my work to the public at large and to let people know that I am available for teaching private lessons in woodturning. Wood turning is one of my passions (the other is motorcycle touring). It is my desire to pass on everything that I have learned over the years to others so that the craft of woodturning will grow.
