Bowls In Ash, Iroko, Lime & African Walnut

As the title says, more bowls in Ash, Iroko, Lime and African Walnut. The African Walnut in particular is an interesting wood to turn. it’s relatively dense but not very hard, and scratches easily when sanding. It’s quite a challenge to achieve a nice sanded finish without leaving scratch marks behind as you move through the grits. By contrast the Lime turns very easily, and tends to turn into a thin powder-like dust, and easily sands to a super smooth finish. All four finished with Chestnut abrasive wax and friction polish.
