This was turned from a piece of maple I brought south with me. This piece cracked through the first tenon I tuned on it and it hit me in the shoulder and flew all the way to the wall when I cranked up the speed. That tenon was punky to start with. When it got to final shape I noticed a crack down the center and I could see clear through it. I epoxied the outside cracks, did the final outside shape and had to epoxy the cracks on the inside when I got that close to final size. Then I finished it with clear gloss lacquer.
It is 9” diameter and 3” high.
