Pimple Bowl. Made from a green ash log, turned rough, dried about 6 months, then finish-turned. “Pimples” are added by depressing the wood with a punch, removing the undepressed wood, then steaming to raise the pimples.

What a wonderful piece. Would you be so kind as to share the pimpling process in some detail, along with do’s and don’ts.
