I found a chunk of rough Ash in my shop and because I’m presently experimenting with a router I figured it would be good for a test.
I don’t really like ash very much cause I’m not fond of the open grain but this piece may have at least started to change my mind.
My son-in-law thinks it’s pretty cool and says it looks like the sun. What do you think?
it is about 7 3/4” x 3/4” finished with several coats of Walnut oil(which seemed to darken it quite a bit). This type of turning is a little difficult to do any sort of finish that has to be sanded a lot so the oils seem to me to be the best way to go.
