Painted Ash Bowl
Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. This ash bowl - otherwise quite pretty - developed a nasty crack all the way across the base and up into the sides. While I was able to fill and secure it quite well with a mix of CA glue and sawdust, it nonetheless was quite noticeable and did not, shall we say, lend to the beauty of the piece. So I added a little paint, and I think the result looks okay. The bowl is 9" across and 5" tall. The wall thickness is 1/8".
