    Just one more bowl

    As i havn't been doing much turning, just some bowls.Might as well show the latest. This is some more spalted ash, 10 1/2x 3 1/4. Couple coats teak oil, followed by multi coats lacquar. Lacquar is knocked back, and will wax and buff later.Click image for larger version.

    Fine. Blame the blond guy. Everyone else does.

    Plus, flat stuff is just so...um...so...flat.

    Looks great!

    Nice when you can get the Ash to spalt, as often it is kind of plain looking wood.

    Stu i had droped a ash tree in the side yard a year and a half a go. thinking i would get my buddy to come hall it to a small mill he knows about. Well hever did get a round to it, and it just layed there. Decided i heeded something different to turn one day and cut a end off it and saw this really nice spalting. Glad it did that for me. Thanks Bernie,Paul, and ofcorse you also Stu.
