Yes, and I was just in one of those high-end gift shops that sell among other items fancy cutting boards, wooden utensils -- and often turned vessels. But there were NO turned vessels. I asked the owner about why not , and she said the price point for them was too high; so they wouldn't sell. Also, some of the (really excellent) wooden objects she did have were made with lasers, computer controlled tools, etc. So the world is changing indeed!
