Couple of firsts for me - first time turning Ash and the first time turning Ebony. I really like the color of the Ash but found it likes to chip out on the edges. The Ebony was amazing to turn! Very strong and dense wood that takes detail work exceptionally well! I can understand why everyone likes using Ebony for finials!
The Ash hollow form has a little spalting, some curl, couple of worm holes, a void and lots of rich color variations. It is 6" diameter x 8" to top of finial x 1/8" thick. Sanded to 400 grit and has a few coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly.
