In September of 2013 president of the Greater Vancouver Woodturner's Guild issued a challenge to turn twenty bowls and bring them to the meeting in May. The guild usually has monthly challenges and this was issued far in advance to give everybody time to work on it with the idea being that making twenty pieces would challenge and improve the skills of those who took part. In the next meeting the challenge was modified to be a 'twenty something' so that those who do not turn bowls could bring twenty of whatever they do turn to meet the challenge. I chose to stick with the original twenty bowl challenge and wound up with a wide variety of bowls and plates with a wide variety of sizes, shapes and types of wood. Those who are paying attention may notice that I have twenty-one pictures in the gallery because I actually turned one extra bowl.
