    Ash Bowl

    Here is a ash bowl I turned. It is from a ash log that has been sitting for about 4 yrs. Almost let it go to long as it started to get some soft punky spots. This one they cleaned up pretty well thankfully and hopefully the rest will to. It is 9 1/2" X 3 1/2". This one is finished with Lee Valley Tung Oil sealer and LV Tung Oil finish. I put 2 coats of sealer on and the 3 coats of the tung oil finish. This one was a experiment as I had never used tung oil alone before. Turned out pretty nice and has like a soft feel finish to it.
