Persimmon Vessel 9 1/2” H x 6” D
Live Oak Burl Candy dish 2 1/4” H x 7” D
The Persimmon wood is a dream to turn! It turns easily, sands well, smells like fresh raw potatoes when turning green, finishes beautifully. I received this wood from my Tree Service guy and he did not know what kind of wood this was, I found out later from an arborist who stopped by my neighbor’s house to look at his huge Live Oak tree. If anyone has a chance to get some Persimmon wood I would highly recommend that you grab it!
I am in the process of finishing another persimmon vase that has already spalted and it is beautiful!
The Live Oak Burl was turned green and has wrinkled as it dried and I think it has unusual looking markings.
