I've been doing a lot of ruff turning the last week. Had some large maple given to me, and i've been trying to get to them before they go bad. Well today i got tired of not being able to finish anything as there all to wet. I had this ash crotch sitting on the floor just whating for the day to do something with it. Been sitting there for at least a year or longer. So i put it on the lathe,not knowing what i was gonna do with it. Did think of Jim B, and almost took a bunch of pics, but as i started it started looking good. Didn't know it was spalted as it still had the bark on it. Well this is what it became. Did this from a half log croch in about 2 hrs. Not counting hand sanding.16x 14x 2. Two coats teak oil so far, but will add some more tomorrow.
