I often find great things at garage sales and this is one of them.

As I was shopping around I found a partially turned bowl some guy had turned years before. He only turned the inside, leaving the outside cut round by a saw. The inside was obviously well used and well loved. On the bottom of the cylinder he had written, '4" bowl'. The finished bowl is larger than 4 inches, so I'm not sure where he came up with that measurement.

So I bought it and brought it home and turned the outside. I chose a simple shape but couldn't resist giving it a little bit of a girly design. I left the inside just as the original turner finished it making this bowl a cooperative work between two woodworkers, possibly decades apart, who never met each other.

This special bowl still retains the pencil written words of the original turner and I added my logo.
