    Honey Locust

    My father-in-law found this tree pushed down in a clear cut, so we grabbed up a few pieces of it. The bugs had eaten it up pretty bad, but I managed to find a couple of small pieces that were still solid. This is one of them.

    5-1/2" x 3-1/2" and I did a spray-on/wipe-off lacquer (2x) finish and then buffed.

    Mark....you nailed the form and finish and the wood is gorgeous! What did you do for a foot/bottom on that?

    OOOHhhhhhhhh very nice. Like Ken said, nailed everything.

    That stuff smells great when cutting. Very much like it's namesake HONEY! Better than the oak I sent ya, hehehe. Still waiting to see what you do with the cottonwood and mesquite!!! Get busy!

    Just a small recess - enough to give it a seat.

    Mark, love it. The form is nicely done and the grain in the second pic is perfect.
