I found some blocks of wood cut down at the fairgrounds. I believe it is Ash, possibly cut due to emerald ash borer that is killing a lot of trees here in the Midwest. One of my first tries at creating something from wood I found laying on the ground. I used salad bowl oil for the finish.

Nice job, Jerry. Pretty grain on the Ash.

Nice work Jerry. How did you hollow out the bowl? Maybe next time you could show more photos of the work in progress. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the comments! I agree, I should show the steps more. The best explanation of how to hollow out the bowl would be to watch a you tube video on it. I used

I drew a rectangle on the top of the project then used a compass to round out the corners. So its not really an oval, more like a rectangle with rounded corners. After I cut the outside of the box I used the compass to trace the inside cut.

Have your say...
