Thread: Persimmon natural edge

  1. #1

    Persimmon natural edge

    I finished this a couple months ago and just now got around to taking pictures. Persimmon, dropped off by a tree trimmer friend. 7-3/4" on the long end, 6-3/4" on the short, and 4-1/2" high. Really nice stuff to turn. Comments and/or criticism is always welcome.Click image for larger version.

    Nicely done, Richard. I've never turned any persimmon. What's it like to turn? Is the bark pretty stout? You did a good job of preserving it.

    I like it. The dark spot makes it look like a face.

    Very nice piece. I really don't know how you guys do that and keep the bark on(?).

    Very nice, Richard. Not to repeat what others have asked, but how do you keep the bark on a piece like this while turning?
