Blue House Bowl, continued

Hi Everyone,
Well, my computer is back from the Apple store and I'm taking pictures again so here is an update on the Blue house bowl from several weeks back:

When I began the bowl it was a large, solid, unseasoned block of ash and because it was unseasoned, it had to be partially turned and dried. I went down to the shop today and took a look at it and it was drying beautifully and so it was time to finish hollowing it. And here it is at present:

It hollowed out very well.

The sides and bottom of the bowl are about 1/2 inch thick and so the bowl is heavy and substantial. I'm wondering if I should thin the sides down some more?

I'm going to leave it over night and sleep on it.

More later,
