Hey fellow LJ’s here is a small vessel I guess you would call it that turned from a branch that I cut from a Sycamore tree in the back yard of my Moms home 2 first here first time turning Sycamore and first time with any spaulted wood and looking at the project on LJ’s of spaulted wood the wood is gorgeous but you dont realize the true beauty until you have a piece in your hand and see the work of art mother nature gives us to turn into something that will be apprieciated for years to come. Bieng my first time with Sycamore had a question because this tree bieng in Florida wanted to know if the Sycamore up north were as soft as the trees here because even the solid parts of the branch seamed to be a very soft wood and even with my sharp tools I had my doubts until I started sanding and smoothed the piece out.
approx. 2 1/2” w and 6” tall
just finished with a coat of wax for now.
Thank you for looking.
couple of natural edge cherry bowls coming later.
