Bowl #32: Green ash with plume figure

The shape of this bowl was partly determined by some checking in the piece of wood I started with, because I was trying to pare away the wood that was beginning to split. As it was, there were a couple of spots that I had to touch up with cyanoacrylate (superglue) to reinforce.

Bowl #32 (3)

It’s 7 inches diameter, and 2 inches high.

Here’s a picture showing the figuring in the interior:

Bowl #32 (4)

This one was a little challenging; ash is a hard wood to begin, but the tree this was taken from had been standing dead for a number of years, so the wood was seasoned. (Green wood is much easier to work than seasoned wood, but then you don’t have to worry as much about the warping that happens as green wood seasons.)
