Was playing on the lathe and turned this. What kind of wood is it? Not from a tree.

Since you LJ,s like guessing games tell me what this wood is from and its not a tree. I know a lot of you will know.
Did not know what it would turn out like but tried it anyways. I’m going back for more.

I’m thinking it’s sugar cane, but i really have nothing to base that on.

Give john339 the bottle of wine. He was right it is a grape vine. I’m going to make some wine bottle stoppers out of it. I found some 4 to 5 inches thick but by the time i get them turn it will only be 3 inches.

I’d have gone with Randy about the antler. I hadn’t ever seen grape vine with such a nice grain, all those which I put my hands on were splintery, irregular, and full of crevices. Pretty amazing what you got here.

I turn grape vine all the time and my guess was deer antler! hahaha! Watch out for dirt and rocks, your tools will get dull real fast. There’s a never ending supply of grape vines here in wine country California!!!
