    Mulberry Weed Pots

    I still can't figure out why the wood is orange, but I know for a fact it is mulberry because I ate the berries for many years before it was cut down. Size ranges from 5-7" tall. Finish is oil and then 4 coats of rattle can gloss laquer. Please let me know what you think.

    I like those weed pots. They have a rustic appearance to them that is appealing to me.

    The Mulberry I've turned started out as a pale yellow but turned that orange/red color after a while.

    Very cool, Jeff. I'm partial to the one on the right. I really like the form on that one. Weed posts are great little practice piece to play with forms, and to see what you like and what you don't like. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Jeff - I also like the forms of the Mulberry weed pot located on the right as well as the locust weed pot. Would make nice looking hollow forms!
