An Ash bowl … 13 1/2” in diameter and 2 3/4” high. Finish is wipe-on poly (3 coats), then buffed and waxed with the Beall System.

The log this bowl was turned from was cut the day before, so it was about as green and wet as could be. I turned it to final thickness (left the tenon one), then put it in a paper bag of shavings and weighed it. In about 6 weeks, it quit losing weight, so I mounted it on the lathe, sanded, and finished it.

Another beautiful piece Gerry. Was there much warping between roughing it out, and the time that it stopped losing weight?

Not much at all. Helps to get wall thickness as consistent as possible. All I had to was true up the foot, sand, and finish.

Turning green is fun, but messy. My whole left side (head to toe) was soaked!

Nice work…how thick did you leave the wall for drying?

A skosh under 3/8” ... about 8mm.
