This is a nested set that I turned over a year ago; just showing off some of my stuff. This was at and partially below ground level; the roots were totally rotted away, which caused the wonderful green and red/purple colors. The wood was absolutely solid, and no punky spots in the bowl at all. These were turned green, and cored with the Kel McNaughton center saver. I did use black CA glue on a couple small hairline cracks that formed as the pieces dried. They are all between 1/8 and 3/16” thick, with approx. 1/4”-3/8” thick bases depending on the size bowl, to balance them. The largest started out at 13.5”, but moved a LOT, to about 12.75. The others are about 10” and 6” at their widest. Although quite thin, Hickory is surprisingly heavy even at this thickness after drying out.
Sorry about the glare spots.
