These 2 tea light bowls were made from the same log of black ash. One was turned with the bark out and the other with the bark in. The one with the walnut inserts had the natural edge in that area and it broke off when the bowl dried so I glued in walnut and put an insert of walnut in the center. The other one turned with the bark in has more of the brown heart wood showing. I ran out of glass Inserts so I put the walnut piece in for added contrast on that piece.

They are 6 1/4” diameter and 2 1/2” high and finished with EEE and Shellawax.

Cheers, Jim

I agree with Lee here Jim, these are a great design, I can see these selling real well at a craft fair or similar, got a sort of built in “anti tip over” & a drip tray
well done Bud

Nice, Jim! The same but different, I like ‘em! Does anything that ‘breaks’ in your shop ever really get tossed? Permanently? Heeheehee Thanks for sharing.

Real nice Jim, same but different, like the design. You and the elves didn’t take much of a break from the shop.

Thank you all for the nice comments. The open grain and the rough end grain take a lot of sanding. They were almost both scrapped a few days ago but somehow I stuck with them.
Cheers, Jim
