Don't mean to pile on, but over the hollidays I had to finsh up a few projects. This is made from a piece of walnut I brought back from Missouri, taken from a downed tree in my parents yard. I't kinda special cause my parents sold the farm last summer after 55 years (where me and my 6 siblings grew up) and we moved them to a nearby town (Kirksville) for health reasons, they are 80 years old. I've brought back enough wood to make and give each bro/sis a keepsake from the "old place". This is one. It is 19" tall by10"wide, turned through the endgrain, with Bubinga on the top and bottom. I confess I had to go through the bottom to get it completely hollow, I dont have the specialized equipment to do it all through the mouth. The finish was a shellac sealer, then several coats of antique oil.
