this was made from a hundred year old corner fence post that had hollowed in the center woodworkers call it osage orange we call it hedge around here mostly used for fence post and firewood. Takes real sharp tools and then more sharping but to me it is worth every minute. This piece is about 10” in dia finished with home brew danish oil and kiwi clear shoe polish by the way I dont like the stand but it made a better pic to view with it.

your homebrew makes a nice shine. I like the natural elements on the sides where you can see through the piece. Nice job1

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

lovely piece, great job holding it together, we dont have this timber down our way boy it comes up nice.
suggestion for the base Wheels, it may show up nice on a set of 3 “twig” legs blackened, just a thought as it would elevate the piece & show the base maybe better :))
