Woodworker: Michael AllisonLike many of Allison’s turnings, this pierced ash bowl (13-in. dia. by 5-in. tall) is made from green wood he found near his home. He achieves the luminescent color with water-based transparent dye, followed by a highbuild, high-gloss finish, in this case, about 14 coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly. The piercings are done with a high-speed rotary air tool. Turned while green, the 3⁄32-in.-thick walls distort upon drying, giving the bowl a sweeping shape. To see more, go to www.michaelallison.us.
