Ash is a very common hedgerow tree that is sadly being decimated by Ash Die Back Disease. This piece came

from a tree that was felled due to the disease, it's a fork or crotch that has a lot of figure in it. During the drying process it developed a few splits, rather than disguise them I have made a feature of them using Blue Holographic glitter in two part epoxy

Each piece is handturned by me from green wood. They are twice turned, the first time they are roughed out and left to dry for up to 6 months. Once the piece is dry they are taken back to the lathe, the shape is refined then multuiple coats of stain are applied to enhance the hidden figure. Up to 6 coats of lacquer are applied to give a long lasting durable finish. The lids are individually made and have a handcut 12tpi thread ensuring a secure closure.
