    Default Claret ash bowl

    Hi guys , had to get a claret ash tree removed from the front of my house awhile ago, so naturally I kept some of the larger logs , this bowl is from the tree , claret ash looks a bit boring so I thought I would add some colouring and a gold leaf natural edge ......
    Any comments and advice always welcome

    Thats given a rather plane piece of wood quite a lift. Its turned out quite nicely.
    I have an ash? bowl similar to yours that has been drying for while now and am going to try charring it. Should be an interesting little project.

    Looks good .
    I got some claret ash a few year ago and am sorry now that I didn't get more .Although it is pretty plane ,it is easy to turn and is good for trying out various embelishing techniques as you have done .
    Well done

    I like that shape Smiife, nice and simple. Cleaning up the "wings" is always a problem.

    smiffe, nicely done old boy, always wondered though, how do you stop the bark coming off or did you stabilise first? the last piece i cut from a tree peeled off as it dried.

    Hi fumbler , thanks for your comments mate, I usually run some CA around the edge before sanding then if there is any spills you can sand them away .....
    This one the bark stayed on really well ...
