    The "Big" Bowl
The Bowl was completed last Fall thanks to a lot of teamwork and a new large bowl lathe made by Doug. It has been on display at several locations since then and is currently on display in Flandreau at the J&K Building Center. Read more information about it in this recent News Article in the Moody County Enterprise.

The next display location is planned to be the Granite Threshing Bee on July 16 and 17.
