A William III Ash Chest-on-Stand – Part Five

The legs have turned up… quite well.

I am not an avid turner, but turning ash, does at least provide some visually spectacular results.

Turning the onions and balusters was plain sailing, but when doing the reels, my hand and eye constantly wanted to make them perfect coves.

It is inhumanely hot here in the south-east of Australia at present, so I’m not even going to consider making the stretcher until the heat relents.

    Very nice choices Jack. I like ash very much. I’m not a turner but even when resawing ash can be like a gift a real surprise can be inside. Do you get the high humidity numbers along with the heat? This piece should be spectacular with some polish applied.
