Small ash hollow vessel - 2
Here's another small turning. It's 2 1/2 in. tall and about the same at it's largest diameter. I used a piece of riftsawn ash, turning the vessel like a bowl so that the grain would wrap around the outside in nice, clean lines. I love the sweep of the grain. I painted the inside with a custom milk paint mixed from snow white and pumpkin milk paints. It's mostly white with a hint of the pumpkin to create the nice pastel color.
I've just about finished my next box. It's been near completion for a while now, but I haven't had a chance to finish it because my mom died after a long battle with a brain tumor. (I've been back home in Florida twice in the last month.) I'll have it up next week. And I have some great boxes planned for the next several.

The bowl is beautiful. I trust your memories of your mother are, as well.

Sorry to hear about your mom Matt but thank you for sharing. It might sound sappy, but I think the human stories behind our online personalities helps connect us in different ways than just woodworking. Keep on keepin on...

I love furniture design, and smart techniques. This blog is about both.
