My Dad had this log in his house as a door stop. He had picked it out of lake in Canada. It was truning at the top of a dam for same time. It looks like a piece of fire wood, he did have one that was almost a perfect sphere. A new spin on green turning LOL

You can find stones formed the same way in rock pools in rapidly moving streams.

Very cool.

Rapidly (or not so) flowing water on a small stone where it more or less stays in place and spins is a way cool method for making small spheres (marbles!).

Are you considering finishing it.

So don’t worry if your taking a long time to finish a turning project. It took Mother Nature YEARS to do this one.

I wouldn’t put a finish on this, it will look like it was turned, leave it natural
