    Ash croch, winged bowl

    I've been doing a lot of ruff turning the last week. Had some large maple given to me, and i've been trying to get to them before they go bad. Well today i got tired of not being able to finish anything as there all to wet. I had this ash crotch sitting on the floor just whating for the day to do something with it. Been sitting there for at least a year or longer. So i put it on the lathe,not knowing what i was gonna do with it. Did think of Jim B, and almost took a bunch of pics, but as i started it started looking good. Didn't know it was spalted as it still had the bark on it. Well this is what it became. Did this from a half log croch in about 2 hrs. Not counting hand sanding.16x 14x 2. Two coats teak oil so far, but will add some more tomorrow.

    I like the winged effect and the wood.... haven't tried a winged bowl yet... gonna have to try one soon.

    'course knowing my luck, I'll lose at least one knuckle doing one of those...

    Good job.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
