From a friend’s oak tree that didn’t survive a storm. It was old and the log was severely cracked. I turned this on my lathe, then fiddled out the cracks to make them more pronounced. It’s designed to be carried, just that the little handle goes all the way around (I couldn’t see getting rid of all that pretty wood just to make it look traditional).
