    Simple elm HF

    After the last one wanted to do something quick and simple.This was ruffed out the same time the one with the arrow head on it that i showed.So it was real dry,but had warped quite a bit.Thought it might of cracked during drying,but even with the knots it didn't. Any way it's 5x6 1/2,finish is teak oil,followed by lacquar,wax, and buffed.Click image for larger version.

    That is a beautiful piece... I like the way elm turns and looks when finished... too bad I lost most of the elm I had stacked in the back of my shop... 50' tall tree about 24" diameter just rotted 'cause I couldn't turn fast enough.
