Very nice, Nate. Was that wood hard cutting when dried? The elm I've turned wasn't too bad when green, but it was harder than woodpecker lips when dry. Hard to cut, and it are tool edges very quickly.

Looks very nice there Nate ! I hope to make one soon !
Nate not only did that turn out good, but boy it's big.
You pulled that off really well Nate!! Form lets that grain do the talking. Any finish on it?

Jim, finish is Dr Workshop Walnut Oil and Carnuba Wax burnished in.
Vaughn, the wood was crazy hard to cut dry. I made a lot of trips to the grinder. Sanding wasn't that bad though, I use Abralon pads and am very happy with them.
