Weeping willow (salix babylonica) – approximately 12” D x 4” high. This hunk of wood started out as a crotch, which caused the amazing flame pattern seen on both the inside and outside. I even left a small bit of the cambium layer (what looks like a small knot in the lighter portion).
Sanded to 1000 grit, finished with spray lacquer, rubbed out with 0000 steel wool, and waxed with Johnson’s paste wax.
This is the first one I’m going to try to sell (at a local gallery) any thoughts on pricing?
