Since I mentioned I like this part of the tree I thought I should post a project of it. This is part of the Cherry tree that was in my back yard and got me started on this wood working adventure when I retired. It is 6” at the top and 4.5” tall. I coated it with salad bowl finish. I was worried about it splitting and the knots falling out but it worked out well. I have started on a similar project, Cherry also, but a little bigger. Should be dry enough to finish next year.
