It looks very Scandinavian with the ash and the modern, clean lines. That is a big compliment, by the way. Your execution has to be perfect to make something that simple look fabulous.

Roper, This is really a nice bowl a real eye popper the walnut adds a whole different dimension to the bowl. I like the finish you used I have never used this before and must give it a try!

Thanks for sharing

It looks like the ash is all one piece. That’s a good sized chunk of ash ! Goes great with the walnut !

That is a beautiful bowl.Ii like the contrasting trim ring on that light wood. Was the ash dry when you turned it?

Man could I use that for a popcorn bowl. Want to trade for a box?
