Project Information

Treen bottle from salvaged elm log. 5.25˝ tall, 1.25˝ of it in the finial which was turned from my dwindling stash of Bois de Rose (Dalgerbia maritima), which smells like cinnamon and honey when turning.
Lumen is 1.5˝ wide, 2 inches deep. The finish on the finial is 2 coats of CA glue, Mylands High-Build friction polish on the bottle itself.
After discovering the spalt I decided to keep this one un-dyed.

That is a beautiful piece and adding colour to this would be a shame.
I hope you have more of that elm log .

I've got about two more bottles or a bowl left in this elm blank. I find myself looking at damaged old elms quite differently these days. Probably time to make friends with a local tree service…

After complimenting him profusely, I suggested he put a tiny mink piece around the bottom of the lid. Then he'd have a really excellent tzar's hat. ;)
