A simple project that ended up in a nice product. I found the residual log/cant at a “cemetery” of a sawmill. It had been on the weather for years, picture 2 shows the source. After that is was just a few cuts with the chainsaw and then…....lots of sanding. I could not believe how hard was to get these pieces to 220 grid finish. The specie is Angelim Vermelho (Dinizia excelsa) and is known to be hard, but it was really hard, i think that been so dry contributed to its hardness.
Finished with a mix of bee wax, mineral oil and copaiba oil.

Those are super cool. I’ve turned a hollow form from a small piece that was rotted out like this but this is awesome.

Thanks for all your kind comments, they are great incentives to keep having fun with woodworking. By the way there are still many if those square the trees at the sawmill
