This is an unknown species of root burl I found on a camping trip a couple of years ago. ... infested with bugs and rot…. tricky to turn, but worth the effort.

This is very nice. I’ve been thinking of giving the hollow vessel turning a try. What brand/style of hollow tools do you use? What speeds are you turning something like this where there are a lot of holes, cracks, etc?

Thanks in advance for the feedback. Again, this piece looks great.

The piece looks a lot like Manzanita burl. Where were you camping?
