Another friend gave me a chunk of spruce. Ugh. I feel like I need to try and make something out of wood when people give it to me, but why can’t they give me better pieces of wood? Lol.

The blank was actually pretty interesting. I just embraced the pitch pocket, voids and the prominent and soft end grain. I hand sanded the end grain, keeping the height variation between early and late wood while removing some of the roughness. Finish is Howard’s Feed and Wax.

The friend liked the result, so it was a good project.
