This is a lidded vase made for Penny from the pecan wood from Shalako farm orchard. The last picture is Penny from Shalako who gives us all the wood we want from her burn pile.
I left part of the raw tree on the bottom so customers can see that it was actually turned from the branch of a pecan tree.

I like the shape and the colour I hope I get to turn something like that soon.

Hi Cher. You have the best selection of exotic wood in Africa. Try zebra wood for a great grain pattern!

Jim, Another fantastic turning. I really like the way you left the base a “Live Edge” for the contrast.

Keep it up.
