« Part 42: Spalted birch Part 43 of 50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 series no next part

Neighbors took down a dying ash this summer, and I rescued some blanks off the pile before it went to the compost site. After around 3 months drying, with Anchorsealed ends, the wood was still a tiny bit damp, which made for nice turning. The finished bowl seems to be stable, so the wood must have been dry enough. This is my first time turning ash, and I really liked the aroma.

9.75” diameter, 3” tall. Shellac sanding sealer and Ack’s abrasive paste.
