    I like the grain

    I was going to colour this one but didn't have the heart. I think the wood is Ash.

    I quite like this one; plain but strangly inviting.

    Cheers
    Frederick

    I agree with you, that grain looks lovely and it would be a shame to distract the eye from it.

    A nice flowing bowl Frederick. I like it no evidence of tool or sanding marks top job.

    Ash always surprises with the grain what looks like a plain piece can produce some lovely grain.

    It is hard to add colour to a bowl that you have spent time turning as many think that they could mess it up. Sometimes you just have to go for it. I take a long look at a piece before committing paints or stains to a piece.
