    Wavy Edge Ash Bowl

    This is the big ash piece I showed progress pics of a couple weeks ago. It ended up about 16 1/2 wide and 9 tall to the highest tip of the edge. It's finished with natural Watco Danish Oil, and hand-buffed lightly with a white synthetic abrasive pad. In the pics there's one chunk of bark at the tip of one of the wings that looks like it could use some more building up. It's not that noticeable in person, but if it bugs me long enough I'll probably try to fix it.

    It ain't perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it. Between the size and the unique natural edge, it's an attention-grabber in person.

    Wonderful!

    I bet you have a lot of people look at that and thing "How'd he do that "

    There appears to be an eye in the middle of the bowl.

    Nice work.

    Really cool bowl Vaughn! Pretty wood and the NE is great! Took a couple of seconds to envision the original log! This one sure grabs your attention!

    Very nice work!

    With me not being a turner, I would'nt have has a clue as to how a log would let that be created, but thank goodness Vaughn looks out for folks like me and started with this thread http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=17473
