Hello folks here is 6 photos showing the different views of one form I turned from an exceptional piece of burr purple yew. I have never seen wood quite like this before- the purple colouration is 100% natural and is caused by ferrous metal being present in the wood (in this case it was a 5” nail)
this piece is 6.5” wide by 8” tall and is finished in osmo uv oil
-- it can't rain all the time!!
