I think its maple. Free neighborhood tree. Was cut down a month ago but was only 35 percent moisture in the middle. Figuring is from ants and a branch scar. Heavy. Maxed out the mini lathe. About 11” x 6”.
soaked with danish oil then spray laquer. It still has the foot in these pics as I want to continue to build up the laquer and be able to put on lathe to buff. Can use the new big longworth jaws I got for fathers day.
