Not much goin on here but this cool lookin plum bias cut with some walnut butterfies. Flattening this was an experience somewhat like flattening a hunk of cast iron…..super hard stuff. I have 2 more similar pieces that i still have to prepare when time allows.

Just an orchard tree that didn’t want to be firewood

When dealing with a cross-sectional slice like that, what do you do to keep it from developing the numerous tiny radial cracks I see so often on these? A controlled drying process, sealer, ??
And I’ve never seen plum before, does they usually develop such a fascinating irregular outside shape?

I would take the 3 pieces and make a three layered free form stand with the plum as the tops of each arm. These are worthy of fine work to be done. You either understand what I am saying or you don’t. Those are really nice pieces and these deserve to be made into something special. You do fine work so I am waiting to see what you do.
