I started with a much larger piece of cottonwood with only a few visible bad spots. But the more I turned, the more it fell apart. But I kept going. Even some rot in the center popped out into my chuck! There ended up being a lot of interesting features in the finished product.

Your persistence paid of Aaron, like the final effect and nice finish. Gets a bit scary as bits fly around the shop.

Congratulations on a great job and finish, also on your courage.

I love making things with bits missing, turning something useless into a work of art.
Thanks for showing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
