Both are saves from a friends firewood pile. The first one is my first attempt at endgrain turning, The second one has the most amazing curly figure I have ever seen in ash. The rim on the second one extends both inside and outside. Both are finished with wipe on oil poly.

Pretty wood and a nice job of turning it.
The rim detail sets it off from the ordinary bowl or cup showing some forethought about the design.

I have never tired Ash under what appears to be the false assumption that the wood fibers would be “stringy” and the end grain would tear badly.

Great looking bowls. I have never seen grain like that in ash.

Have your say...
