This piece of wood followed me home a couple of years ago, I have no idea which Euc Species it is, but it is pretty.

It is sanded to 400 and finished with Shellawax Glow friction polish.

It is approx. 10inches tall and 5inches wide.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

C & C Welcome.

Bob.

That is real nice Bob, lovely bit of turning and great finish. Like the all over shape of the urn. Thanks for showing.

The heartwood and sapwood look great together on this. It’s like night and day. Nice urn Bob.

Eucalyptus is one of my favorites. As usual, I had to take a deep breath before opening my eyes and looking at this.
