Sorry for slow reply Paul, yes i finished that one and many more like it. When I started and first worked out how to do those big nests I was so proud and thought it would be how I would make my living. Problem is like Lailey I ended up selling all the bowls individually because people just want a big bowl or a medieum one, or 4 small ones. I still make a few big nests but rarely sell them as such.
