FART Wood. (Found at rubbish tip)

This is an unknown species although I strongly suspect it is “Bauhinia” or Butterfly tree.
The piece was waiting at the tip for me to come and pick it up. The dark centre was what attracted my attention.
I had a bit of fun with the narrow vase on the left side of the photos, slicing that piece and rejoining it so the colour was on the outside rather than in the middle.
These are sanded to 400 and polished with Shellawax glow.
Hope you like them and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.

Bob.

Love your title Bob! I don’t know anything about turning wood at all but I do know a nice looking piece when I see one.
These look mighty fine. Interesting grain… Looks nice!

Very nice pieces, that idea of reversing the center wood is great. Nice work.

I thought that only grew around dumps. Nice work on them Bob. They do have nice grain.

Very nice Bob, great idea of playing with the grain. Looks like it could be Tasmanian Black Hearted Sassafrass,
sounds better Fart wood.

Hi Jim,
Yes I did, always do if more than a couple of inches deep.
