Got a piece of firewood from my in laws and turned this vase about a year ago. I suddenly noticed sanding marks after I finished so I put it on the shelf and am now just getting around to it. Poly finish but I am still going to buff it. Just waiting for it to cure.

Talk about firewood! the grain is incredible, big props to you for envisioning what it would turn out (...) with some loving care.

Sigh… so much firewood, so few woodworkers! I always wonder what sort of wooden beauty has already gone up in smoke. Here is one example that did not. I’ve rescued some wood myself, but not made anything as nice as this, yet.

Very nice work – I like the heartwood/sapwood contrast and the dark lines on this particular piece of mesquite. A friend just gave me a few mesquite chunks today and this makes me want to make some sawdust!
