  • Ash bowl and plate combo

    Just completed this combo which has grooves, 'mortises,' and 'tenons' to allow the pieces to connect together.
    It is ash, removed due to insect damage, from the boulevard.
    Both are from the same piece of wood.
    Antique oil, Wipe-on Poly, Beall buffed.
    Once the oil went on, I realized the figure was so strong, I didn't need the texturing.

    (Don't know what this will show as.)

    Am going to have to work on Photography (as I have been told in previous posts).

    I'm not good enough to be a wood-turner who takes pics, or be a photographer who turns. I'll just be half-a**ed at both

    Thanks for looking.

      Nicely done, does the bowls bottom have enough of a purchase to let you pick it off the platter?

      Also, does my math was never much good, but wouldn't two halves make a whole?

        Thanks Al. I was surprised, as there's a nice bit of flame on the lower outside, but not on the inside. It all depends on the orientation when turning.

        Ya Tom, I put an easy to lift cove on the bottom. And thanks for the math lesson. Now I'm going to be looking for child labour in near-eastern Ontario again.

          I like it Noel. I’ve turned Ash bowls and spindles.

          If you learn from your mistakes, then I'm getting a fantastic education.

              We have to make a lot of decisions when doing this kind of work, sometimes we don't know the questions until its too late, then there may be more than one right answer.
              So often its a case of settle for what you get and learn to be happy with what we do.
              Nice work Noel I do hope you had fun doing it.

                Thanks for the comments.
                It is one of the first projects where I did not find anything disappointing.
