Ash Burl Tray

A little while ago i made a post about a big old Ash burl i had been given, well at last I've made a start on working up into a bowl, first job was to cut a slice off of the bottom so it stood square, having done this i was left with a slice of the burl and it seemed a shame to just throw it away, so this afternoon i turned it into a shallow bowl / tray.

It has a tooled interior surface and the rim has been taken down smooth with a cabinet scrapper, i still need to work on the exterior surface of the tray though, pretty pleased with it, especially considering it was just going to get thrown in the burn pile.
