    The "Big" Bowl
The Bowl has been completed and was on display at the November Club meeting. There was a lot to teamwork needed to take it from the initial concept Al started with to final completion. Great teamwork. Thanks to Doug for building the lathe and storing the bowl while it was a work in progress. I wonder what the next project will be. Rumor has it that Doug is ready to do a world-record bowl.
