A month ago I took down an ash tree in the back of my house. I thought I would make a set of dishes (large salad bowl, individual salad bowls, plates; platters, utility bowl and soup bowls) out of this tree. I am in the process of roughing out these dishes now and if dry enough will finish turn them this fall/winter. I anticipate using these dishes as food dishes. My question to those of you having done this before is how thin/thick do you finish turn them? The standard 3/8", 1/4" or ?? Thanks in advance.
