Simple Ash Bowl

This was free piece of wood from my woodturning club. It's the first time I've worked with ash. A fairly hard wood, but worth the effort. I really like the sapwood on this piece and all the hairline cracks. They give this rather uniform wood some character.

Size is approx 7" in diameter and about 2" high.  Finished with a layer of shellac to pop the grain, then 3 coats of danish oil. SOLD

You Can Never Have Enough Clamps

Now I know what woodworkers mean when they say this.

I was gluing up a couple of face frames when i came up short. I had no idea I had so few clamps. Looks like I need to invest in some more...

Yes, that is an edge guide being used as a clamp. I was getting desperate.  It worked  by the way.
