This is an Urn turned from a wood called “Acasia Leah” it is a burl and this is the natural color. Very stabil burl and very firgurative. The lid is “African Blackwood” same wood clarinet bells are made from.

This is an outstanding piece. I love the color and character of the Acasia. As a non-turner seeing posts like this definately moves a lathe higher up on my tool list.

Thanks for sharing this piece.

Dale, this is absolutely stunning. You do such beautiful work. I like the contrast in woods, and that burl is incredible.

Thanks for posting it.

This piece came from some wood shipped to me from Brazil. I believe it is a south american native but I am not positive. The piece on the profile photo with the lathe is a huge piece of burl cap from the same shipment.
