    Very nice, Steve. I've got a pretty big ash bowl on my lathe right now, but I'm going kind of slow on it since the wood's already dry and I'm in no real hurry to finish it.

    Too nice for ashes. Sorry, it's a slow day, I couldn't resist.
    Lookin' good. Agree with the grain show off on closed bowl.
    How is ash to turn? Is it a lot like oak which I do not care to turn?

    All the Ash I have handled here in the UK (kiln dried and local home dried) has been softer than Oak and a pleasure to turn, similar to sweet Chestnut.
