This is a natural bark edge open form turned from a piece of hackberry. Eight inches high and 10 inches in diameter at it’s widest point. There is some open air on one side where I dug an old indian arrowhead out of the piece before I turned it. This area now looks like a seahorse, at least that is what I was told – never argue with a paying customer! Finish is wipe on satin poly followed by all three steps on the Beall buffing wheel.

The turning looks great, The seahorse looks great to me.

Nice job of keeping the bark on. For me, it flies off at the last moment.

Fantastic turning. Love the live edge and the opening. Looks like a sea horse to me.

Keep up the great work.
