9 inches tall and 12 inches wide this cherry burl stayed together. Yes as I went deeper there was a hole in the bottom. It was in the tenon. Never so glad to get a piece off the lathe. Does not yet have finish as I am waiting for the piece to dry out further.

C and C welcome

Ron

A beautiful work of art. I was trying to imagine the kind of boots that were hiding in this burl. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful piece. I’ve tried several times to do pieces that were VERY THIN but any time I get those little “ears” going on, they soon come flying off. Maybe I’m being a bit too heavy handed with the tools?

I have seen these kinds of gorgeous, rough “bowls” as art and they are just incredible. I have no turning experience but have watched plenty on it’s method. I just cannot understand how someone can turn something like this. It’s amazing to me that it would hold together. Next time you do something crazy like that make a video!! Just beautiful work.

It will have to be a time lapsed video. This was a couple days of turning
