Simple form

This piece is made of Ash and measures 10 inches dia x 6 high and has been turned thin all the way through so that it will dry within the next week or so enough for me to texture and colour.

This is not my preferred wood for this kind of work as I would have normally used sycamore due to its close grain and stable structure, although ash does not cause many problems in seasoning although the grain will have to be dealt with so not to show through the final finish.

So another one on the conveyor belt that needs finishing.
