Looking good Mate, all you have to do now is keep the bark on.
Love it.
Thanks for sharing.

Looks Peachy Keen man!

I’d liked to have seen the log you started with. Having a hard time figuring out how the top edge still has bark, but the wide part of the vase doesn’t, when it appears wider than the top. How’d you do that?

Mark

You did a great job on keeping the bark on the rim. Does Peach turn well? I never turned it before and it looks nice.

Also what is the dust on it for?

The vase is awesome with that natural top. Well done.
