This is a small vase I turned yesterday from a branch. It has a natural edge rim.

Thanks Jim. I used shelac and buff dried it.

I like how the grain looks to spiral in. Nice photo too!

Thanks for all the nice complements.

The wood was not green. I had the branch in my shop for years not knowing what I was going to do with it.

I used shelac as the finish. I just wiped it on with a small piece of cloth, turned the lathe on a high speed, and buffed the shelac dry. I call it the buff dry method.
