Woodturning – It was maybe better left as a log !!

In this video I turn a natural edge from an Ash crotch log, I was a bit gutted to lose all the natural colours that were on this log, I thought the finished piece was a bit boring in contrast.

  1. Nice job! I like how you left the lichen in place. Might be home for a few critters πŸžπŸ¦—πŸŒπŸ›πŸ˜‰

  2. I guess this hunk of wood could have been left as is but then we wouldn’t be admiring this uniquely fabulous conversation piece now would we Andy?!!!

  3. I always love it when you leave the “natural” edge on a piece. Great work even if it’s not what you hoped for.

  4. So I woke up on a not very promising Friday morning thinking I could just fancy one of your videos as I think about getting up and giving the cat his breakfast and there you are with a natural edge bowl too which are my absolute favourites. What a treat! There’s nothing wrong with it Andy, it’s beautiful and one of your specialities. Your “bread and butter” pieces put everyone else’s best efforts in the shade. Yes, I like the coloured pencils, the many-coloured mosaics, the free-ring goblets, the triumph of ingenuity and technique over materials; but finding the beauty in the most unpromising chunk of timber is real craftsmanship. The rest is highly enjoyable showing off!

  5. A côr dessa madeira deixou a peça muito bonita!
    Especial seu trabalho,sou sua admiradoraπŸ‘πŸ™‚πŸ€—πŸ’—

  6. I’m not sure what you envisioned Andy but it turned out really pretty. I can see large/giant pine cones collected from massive Sequoia pine trees nestled in the bowl. ❀❀❀

  7. Most definitely better now, than when it was a log. Cheer up Andy, it looks great. Well done.😊

  8. Another beautiful work, Andy! Really well done! πŸ˜ƒ
    Stay safe there with your family! πŸ––πŸ˜Š

  9. I love the fact that you left the green edge on, makes it look so natural, as if it grew to be that shape.
