A friend had a fairly large poplar tree removed from his yard and let me have all of the wood that I wanted from the tree. A few of the branches had some very dark purple mineral staining. This vase or bowl is from that wood. I used my new Sorby hollowing tool and it made quick work of the coring, maybe not as quick as a Forstner bit, but fast nonetheless. The finish is dewaxed shellac.
