John Goodwin gave me another pine burl.. about 5” round and on a 1” branch which I oriented parallel to the base. I tuned a small bowl out of it and tested out turning the man made turquoise with it. It cuts real nice – you don’t even feel cutting through it . It finished at 3 1/4” x 1 3/4” high.

The flickering battery powered tea light looks like a real candle at night and the light shows through the thin section of the branch. This one will be a gift light.
The finish is Danish Oil and clear lacquer.
