    I got mine today also. Carole did a great job! I really like the vase she showed. Carole is the vase pattern in a book somewhere I can buy?

      I know my piece probably didn't add too much for folks already doing bowls, but I tried to give an overview, and answer the commonly asked questions, especially for folks who haven't yet give it a try. Hard to write something meaningful in only 500 words, but good discipline.

      As for the vase, just keep cutting the blank in half and inserting another strip of wood until you get to 16 segments. Then glue that onto an additional piece of wood and it will give you that pattern. Make 2 of them, one face up, the other face down, and you get a vase. If you haven't played around with 2 or 3 sets of rings, it's really a lot of fun, and the results can be amazing.

        I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

        FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

        Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

        I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
