Those handles are marvelous, I'm amazed how the shape comes out just right.

Bubba,

You need 3 objects, 2 rails and 1 cross section.

Imagine you are making a roof, you need 2 walls and some roof trusses to span them. It's the same here, you need two lines to represent the walls or outer borders then a cross section line to span them.

If you are trying to create a bowl shape you should use the Revolved Extrude plugin.

Thank you. I got it now. Totally forgot about the Revolved extrude plugin.

Thanks again.
