    Spalted ash

    This is the piece i sent off to TX this AM. It's for the swap we're doing over on woodturners unlimited. As i checked and he's not a member here thought it would be safe to go ahead and post now. Had started out going to send him the natural edge maple i posted about a few days ago. Well as it didn't do right this is what he gets. 11 1/2x 4 or there abouts. Finish is 2 coats of teak oil, followed by multi coats lacquar. Lacquar knocked back and wax and hand buff. Hope he likes it.

    Pretty wood and prettier bowl. The lucky recipient will be very pleased.

    Hi Stephen; I can't see why he wouldn't like it, other than all the black streaks in it!

    It sure would have made some nice pen turning material.

    Sweet wood Steve, but I especially like the profile of the bowl. Perfect deep ogee form, and it looks like you took it nice and thin, too.

    Jim and I are two great minds that think alike!

    I will send you a pm with mailing instructions to my daughter in MI. Mailing to her will minimize the mailing costs which I am prepared to absorb as well as the cost of the blanks!

    Thanks for the offer!
