    Ash Salad Bowl

    I got this wood a couple of weeks ago off my father-in-law's place after an ice storm brought it down. It looked like it might have been dead-on-the-hoof for a while due to the spalting, but the wood still had a little bit of moisture in it. I sanded it thru 220 and it is now gettin' several baths of Walnut oil.

    I don't know if I've seen spalted ash before. Another fine job there, Mark.

    It doesn't get any better than this one. I love the subtle little sweep out from the curve to the rim. I also like the way the rim is rounded inviting the viewer to look into the bowl. I am not too sure I would make a salad in it however as it is too pretty.

    Nice photo too!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
