This was a piece of one of the branches I cut off a crotch that got made into a bowl. Rather that pitch it, I put it on the lathe and turned two tenons on it and then made a hollow piece- hollowing from the bottom because the hole is only 5/16” in the top. I wanted to see if I could make a super thin flange and it worked out pretty good. There was the usual crack that appeared but some epoxy and sawdust filled ‘er up . I plan to make a finial plug for the top at a later date .
It is 2 3/4” dia. and 5 1/4” high and finished with clear glaze spray
