Detailed Info about bowl
This bowl was turned from a black ash burl that I purchased from a logger in Hovland, MN. A side view of the burl is shown in the photos above, mounted on a lathe. The headstock of the lathe is to the right in this image so the bark rim of the bowl is round and from this rounded part of the burl. The base of the burl comes from the left part of the burl in this image. The bowl has a natural bark edge and a classic round shape. The grain figuring in this burl is spectacular with many swirling lines, a glow from flame and chatoyance, and some darker areas from spalting. The shape of the bowl was chosen to best bring out the beauty of the wood figuring and to maintain a complete natural bark edge. The bowl was turned using handheld tools on a lathe from green wood, dried for several months, and sanded to 600 grit. The bowl was sealed with two coats of tung oil, hand sanded after each coat, and finished with a buffed thin coat of beeswax and walnut oil. This finish is considered food safe, although this bowl may be best suited for artistic display. This bowl should last for hundreds of years and improve gracefully with age. This is a very nice burl bowl and will stimulate great conversation. It has an elegant shape and great burl figuring!
