This has been on a friend’s mantle for some years.
It was my first try at this shape, made of Green Ash, Manitoba Maple, Box Elder..take your pick.
As has been discussed elswhere, it faded in the light over time., when I made it there were very distinct red accents, lines and swirls in the body..all gone now, not even a bit of pink.
The screw is comercial hardwood dowel I threaded with a screwbox, the handle’s walnut.
the holes for the screw and the nut opening were drilled first, then the body turned.
I made my own centre for the screw hole, again dowel, threaded and screwed in then into the lathe and turned it.
The last shot shows the back where some spalting took away the round.
Finish is/was danish oil.
