    Spalted Cherry Twig Pot

    Had a little time to turn somehting small and fast last night. It's about 10" tall and 4" round towards the bottom. Finish is my homebrew danish oil. Took probably 15mins total...gotta do more of this cuz it was fun! Comments and critiques encouraged!

    I just split up a bunch of this cherry because I thought it was punky. At least my friend can use it to smoke some meat I guess. I've got a couple big hunks I held onto so that will be coming up soon!

    Thanks Steve and Larry...yup I love me some rotten wood, but the ends of some of the logs I could stick a knife into...thought the whole log was that way but once I split it....I did save a couple split pieces for my dad to turn some pens with.

    I agree, though. More pics, Jeff! Great-looking piece of wood. I really like the sapwood/heartwood combo. I'd like to see a better profile shot before I decide if I like the coved shape of the body.

    Nice looking piece Jeff, I like the shape. Color contrast is nice too.
