Small dish turned from found crotch wood. On the bottom you can see how two (or more) branches grew together.

Wonderful how an old ratty chunk of wood can look with a lathe and a bit of work.

Nice job!

Wow! did you wear a padded vest and helmet incase some big chunks came off during the turning.
I have never tried turning “crotch” wood from the end grain. I usually cut the piece in half with the grain first (get two bowls that way too). It usually produces some great flared or flaming grain patterns that way.
