Turning!

Ash bowl
Ash bowl

Well, I got a lathe for Christmas and this is my very first bowl, made from a piece of the ash tree that two years ago was mercilessly robbing my vegetable patch and has met its just come-uppance. There are many more bowls among the firewood.

Well, it’s more of a dish than a bowl, and it’s only four inches in diameter, but I’m very proud of it. I mean, I still have both eyes and all my fingers.

Many thanks to Bill at the BWA for giving me a turning lesson in exchange for some plywood offcuts. Win-win!

I’m having a go at a small piece of the walnut tree now.
