This is a large barrel shaped vessel that is going to be used as a cookie jar by the guy i sold it to. It consists of a solid cherry bottom, spalted quartered gum segmented lower and upper, the middle ring is segmented and is cherry and birds eye maple. Also a band segmented walnut between the cherry and gum. The top ring is a solid ring of cherry. **Note I am assuming that the lower and upper is “gum” i got the wood out of a 4×4 timber that a load of lumber came into my mill on and between my father and uncle both of which have 30yrs plus in the lumber industry came to the conclusion that it is something southern probably gum, until otherwise told with a definate reasoning from someone i will continue to do so.
