This is a hollow piece I made from my sister’s ornamental pear tree. It is a little different than originally designed with the walnut added. I used my Jamieson boring bar to cut out the inside and I had it to 1/8” all over – including the bottom. Then when I finished the bottom and had a little nub left in the center, I tunked it to break it off like I usually do and it took a piece out of the bottom. I forgot I made it so thin. So in woodworking you learn to improvise and move on ,so I finished it with a walnut pedestal on the bottom.
The finish is Deft satin lacquer.
