Green Ash Bowl Blank GA-230
6" x 8" x 2.5"
This is a nice crotch bowl blank of Green Ash suitable for a bowl of 5 to 6" diameter and up to 2.5" deep. This is a half-log with full sapwood and bark on the back. It has some nice chatoyance related to the crotch split and a bit of a feather pattern in the crotch itself.
It is ready to be mounted on your lathe and turned to create a conventional or natural-edge bowl. It does have a during-growth crack that is brown-black with age -- these are often from windstorms during growth. Much of this would turn out in a conventional bowl form. Any remaining checks can be readily treated with CA glue. If you'd like a natural edge bowl, you'll find that the bark is full and tight on the back of the blank. I've taken multiple photos of this blank, more than 3, so please scroll down in the photo gallery to see them all.
