    Thick Ash bowl

    Getting ready for a show next weekend and trying to add some variety... not much to say about this one except it is thick.



    If you have a pulse you have a purpose...

    I happen to like bowls which have a substantial look about them. This is the kind of bowl I would sit on my counter with fruit that I would expect some abuse from the kids. The thickness would save the bowl if they dragged it onto the floor.

    Those thin bowls, depending on the wood species, can break easily if dropped.

    This bowl has good form and great character. Pile on the apples, oranges and bananas. Since it is close to Christmas pour in a bag of mixed nuts and add some nutcrackers.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    If you dropped this bowl it would likely break your floor...

    Good stuff Mr. C. I agree with John's "in your face thick" comment.

    Looks like it's thick and it has good character. Sounds a lot like me!
    I like it.
    I love making wood spin while I poke it with sharp metal objects.
