This started out as a goblet in green laburnum but went a tad too thin at the top so parted it off and turned it into a tea light holder.
Always nice when you can recover something from an error.
Despite it being very wet when turned, it hasn’t shown any signs of cracking, warping or twisting.

Hi Spudhogg, not sure what happened to the picture on that post. Maybe too much sanding sealer vapors in the air!!
Thanks for your comment, much appreciated.

Very nice display of grain and great save.

Beautiful grain on this, great turning. I really like the color contrast in this wood.
