    small hollow vessel in desert oak

    Small hollow vessel made from Desert Oak [Acacia Coriacea Sericophylla] for more info try here http://www.ttit.id.au/treepages/desertoak.htm

    4.5" high x 4.0" dia showing the sap wood around the major diameter. This timber take a fine polish with either oil or wax and is a joy to turn.

    Part of the Christmas range I have been doing, a bit late but the shed is in the middle of a revamp as well. Plus I/We are baby sitting three grandchildren made it kinda hard to achieve anything.

    Very nice work Neil. Color seems very fitting given the orgin of the wood. Good use of sap wood for coloring.
    cheers
