Got a load of firewood about 3 weeks ago. Quite a mix of woods including this nice piece of green applewood.
This 9 and one half by 4 and one half piece of apple was fun to turn with my termite. Zipping long strands of wood off was a blast. I haven’t turned any green wood in awhile especially end grain. I thought it would warp but so far it hasn’t. The colors remind me of a Palamino Pony. I put a coat of Waterlox Original after sanding to 220 then 4 coats of wipe on poly knocking off the nibs inbetween coats. Burnt the rings into the top and bottom with a piece of braided steel. Was going to make a lid and finial but the wife wants to put apples in it. How appropriate.
