I’m still using up pieces from the Plum Tree from the back yard. A bowl, 2.25” X 4”, and a vase, 5” X 4”. Both finished with NaturOil. So far my vases have been used for make-up brush holders. I’m going to make some for that purpose in the future.

That’s some very pretty wood, John. It looks a great deal like Peach, dunnit?

Thanks everyone! I have too many favourites now. Mark the wood is like Peach but the purple in it makes it a little different.

wow, the wood speaks volumes for these pieces! Simple forms are all you need with grain like that. Nice job, now I’m inspired to find some plum wood to turn of my own! Thanks for sharing!
