Another piece of Manzanita.

This one had a large void that compromised the integrity of the turning. I used Alumilite tinted with orange dye to fill the void prior to turning. Turned complete with Easy Wood Tools and finished with wipe on gloss poly.

It reminded me of an inactive volcano. Might make a nice place for keys or old paper clips.
