If you could win this beautiful Spalted Maple Bowl made by Santa Steve Beecraft to give as a gift, who would you give it to and why?

Tell us before 10pm forum time on the evening of December 17th. :)

I had someone in mind and Beenthere's reply convinced me.  I would give it to Beenthere and here's why.  Take a look at his posts, They are always aimed at either helping to answer a question or to compliment someone, or to offer condolences, or to just add humor.  He never toots his own horn or puts anyone else down. Now I know there are many other members that do the same,  but he just seems to be always humbly committed to adding value to the forum.
P.S. Now don't get a big head BT :D

Should it be a FF member or can it be anyone?  If it can be anyone, then I'd give it to my wife because she is beautiful and worthy of beautiful things.  If it must be a FF member, then I don't know...  so many folks around here deserve something like that.  Guess Furby would be first on my list.

I think katie-did should have the bowl since she is too busy to turn a bowl and part-timer must be too lazy to get on here and choose her to get it.

My wife and I have a friend who did our marriage ceremony, he has since retired. In his retirement he has become a potter. I call him Peter the Potter, I used to call him Pete the Priest! Anyway he is always giving us pots cups and anything else he has been experimenting with. He appreciates skill and talent, I would give him the bowl.

We all want to give it to our wives :).

However, when I think about the Forum and what it represents, I see it embodied by Tom.  He is wise, he is kind, and he is out to help anyone that he can.  In many ways, he is a larger than life figure here.  If it cannot be a red shirt, then it may as well be a beautiful spalted bowl.  I appreciate what you bring to this Forum Tom and I really appreciate that you have become my friend.

My wife came to mind first but I wood really rather turn one for her myself. Not sure I have any chunks of wood that pretty though. My next thought was Tom

   My first response would be my Mother. She's a great woman and the best mother a young boy (or an older one) could/can have. Also, a few years ago I gave her a spalded persimmon bowl that looks almost identical to this bowl. She does alot of family entertaining, especially at the holidays, and it's always full of nuts or candies. That said, I am all behind the "draft Tom" movement. He is a shining example of what these forums should be about . Tom is always there to help, has the wisdom to share, and is quick with much needed humor. I think delivering the bowl to our own version of Santa (Have you let the hair and beard grow back out Tom?), red shirt and all, will be quite appropriate. smiley_clapping

    Good idea, Woodcutter.

I would give it to my wife of twenty six years. She has put up with me for a long time! This last year has been tough on her as she has had some health problems and now has pneumonia. I certainly couldn't make anything for her as nice as that bowl.

That bowl would look good full of pine cones and greenery this time of year for Santa to enjoy.Colored eggs and jelly beans for Easter.Hearts for Valentines Day would make any heart throb.Some nice flowers in the spring would make it shine.Harvest from the garden would do wonders for it.Small pumpkins and squash would make everyone hungry for Thanksgiving.My wife Brenda would do all that with the bowl and make it a new home at The C Farm.
