Here is yesterday’s results. This piece has a lot going for it. It has the right shape and some interesting grain. I could wish for more exposed heartwood, but I will get to that part of the broken out tree top later.
Here is a piece turned by my 16 hear-old son. He reported that “the shape improved when I had to turn away a catch near the base.” This piece is box elder and shows a lot of promise. Of course, I am an impartial judge of this.
