Hello folks

here is a rectangular bowl form- I used to make allot of these but hadn’t made one for a few years- this piece was turned green from a lovely piece of olive ash which was windblown on a nearby farm in 2010.I cut the wood from a crotch section which also showed some ripple- the ends of the piece were left as they were straight from the chainsaw
this piece measures 6 3/4” wide by 13” long and 2.5” deep- finished with woodoc 10 oil

-- it can't rain all the time!!

Very nice winged bowl, sounds like the lathe will take off turning this style of bowl.

Very cool, Joe Herrmman has been doing something like this but with the bowl centered, I also heard about a guy loosing a thumb making one of these. This is truly beautiful. Something I’d like to try.

Pretty cool, dude!

It’s obviously a great display piece, but I wonder if it’s a piece to be used as well?

Want to finish wood in sauna. Would watco oil or BLO stand up to the high temps? Using pine, walnut, and oak.
temps 100 to 160 F.
