At the beginning of the year I was asked by a long time friend, who was relocating and renovating his families restaurant, La Pergola, in Balingen, if I would turn him wooden bread bowls from oak. The result was 9 or 10 bowls. This was the first (and until now last) time that I had to turn so many things and have them be relatively close in size and quality. It was a great experience. Turning the same thing over and over really builds up skill and muscle memory.
