  1. Once again I’m astonished at what you are able to turn. Do you sharpen your own lathe tools? If so, I would love a tutorial.

  2. Hey not bad for firewood, I think burning the edge of the bowl was a nice touch. Also I’m happy to say that I was finally able to purchase a lathe for myself this year. I can’t wait to take it for a spin and try out a few inspired projects thanks to you Andy.πŸ˜„

  3. beautiful bowl, love the burnt edge, makes it very unique, lovely woodgrain, whomever receives this as a gift should be most pleased, another lovely piece of art Andy!!!

  4. Beautiful little bowl Andy, someone is getting a beautiful gift! ❀❀❀❀

  5. Very unique bowl,you always keep us guessing till the end. You never disappoint.great video as always.just keep on doing what you do best.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜Ž

  6. I’d be thrilled to receive this as a present! I love the edge – the contrast of the colours is awesome!

  7. What a gorgeous trinket tray! I especially like the burnt edge. Whoever gets it for Christmas is going to love it!

  8. These are the ones I like best, just a random piece of old wood and a simple but not obvious shape, showing its unexpected beauty. The dark crack becomes a feature, not a flaw. The pencils and the resin are great fun but this is real woodwork. My grandfather was a joiner – very basic stuff mainly, like mending chairs and the desks from the local school – but he was also the village undertaker and made coffins. My sister and I spent a lot of time in his workshop, watching him at work, learning about different types of wood and the use of his tools. Looking back it was a bit weird with the odd half-finished coffin propped up in the corner, but fascinating and, for us, just normal.

  9. A little bit like opening a badly wrapped Christmas present then finding an absolute gem inside.
    Happy Christmas Andy & thank you for sharing your artistic gifts for us to admire & enjoy β™₯️

  11. Of course Andy has the power of pardoning a piece of firewood for Christmas! But with his extraordinary creative genius, he has made a Christmas present masterpiece, leaving it with an incredible burnt edge as a gentle reminder of what it could have been! Its gorgeous Andy!
