In trying to remember how we dated out bowls we figure it went like this. We made bowls starting the summer of 1977. From 1977 through 1978 we just have David's name on the bottom, from 1979 through part of 1980 we have his name and the type of wood. Sometime in 1980 onward, we started dating the bowls. Since we kept very few bowls until much later for ourselves, it was only on a bowl someone was showing us from their collection that I remember seeing a 1980 date. Since in those years David did not turn bowls in the summer, I am guessing that once he started up again after the art shows we started dating them.
