Ash is becoming harder to find, especially large pieces, like this. I didn't try to hide any of the log's flaws, but instead enhanced them for everybody to see nature's imperfections. The holes I drilled and filled with dyed clear expoxies, so light can shine through and brighten the hole's colors. This large bowl would make a great fruit bowl for the kitchen island, or a terrific salad serving bowl. Hand-sanded to a soft finish, and topped off with Food-safe finish. A truly unique piece!!
