Diving to Orange County via the Ortega Highway I saw a tree company taking down a very large tree. I believe it was eucalyptus. I turned this Box and a bowl about 8” in diameter so far. The wood dried very fast and checked severely so I’m not sure what I will be able to get out of the rest of the wood.

I like the box better then the bowl. The inclusion gives a lot of character. Again a very nice job!!

Nice job

I think it is great whenever we can use material from a fallen tree. The wood is beautiful, well done.

Nice shape and design. I like the bark inclusions. Gives it good character.

Keep it up.
