« Part 89: Candy Dish from Macassar Ebony Part 90 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 91: Mystery Wood »

This project was based on grabbing a piece of wood and saying, what can I make with this. I had no idea what the end result would be, nor the beginning. I simply turned it round and went from there. I thought about using this wood before, but felt it was a little punky in the corner through the center. I decided, what the heck, lets give it go.

The Claro Walnut is beautiful, but the punky sap wood is horrible. (At least I think it was the sap wood.) The contrast between the soft and hardwood didn’t stay color separated and when it came time to do some sanding, the difference was very noticeable. The project started out to be a bowl, but quickly changed to a tea light holder.

I think it came out alright, all things considered.
