I recently turned this small vase out of Ash. It is about 5″ tall, 3 1/2″ in diameter at its widest and an 1 3/4″ at its base.
As I finished it with the Beall Buffing System and noticed that the red Tripoli gave the grain a pinkish hue. No doubt a concern when using this system but on this piece it was one of those ‘happy’ accidents. :)
Right now this piece is all wrapped up and waiting to go with me this afternoon to a BBQ. I’m giving it to the host who has been very helpful and supportive to me and a lot of others over the years.
