Ash Turned Bowl (8/14/2006)

I recently acquired a new Powermatic 3520B lathe, so I finally returned to complete a few bowl rough outs that I had started last year. "Utilitarian" is a nice way to say "fairly boring", but I wanted to focus on technique and form for these bowls. So there's not much decoration or flair, but I kinda like unadorned stuff anyway....

Here is an ash bowl about 7" in dia. Finish is buffed danish oil. Click on the thumbnails for a full sized pic: 


I gave this bowl to my father in law who helped cut this very tree down in my back yard.  Unfortunately it died from the Emerald Ash Borer.  I appreciated his help, and I hope he likes the bowl.
