Turned thing, call it a pot or a vase or a hollow form.

Still drying but I am considering calling it finished and trying to sell it, I may get the courage to go back and sand it and polish up the outside. Possibly even make a lid for it. Right now it has a little bit of oil and wax “stain” on the outside just to help it dry evenly and help keep the knots from cracking.

The last two pictures are of a natural unstained platter and a big thick bowl both with bark on them. Was thinking of making a ‘roof’ lid for the bowl and hanging the platter below it, making a huge hangable birdhouse with feeder under it.

Bidding starts at $1 +shipping. Hehe j/k, still has months to dry.

Ps sorry you had to see my smashed thumb in pic 3, don’t look, its gory.

Re the thumb … Ouch. The pot/vase/form looks great. It is neat when you let the wood speak for itself.

of course it’s a vessel ! and a mighty fine one at that I might add ! Nicely done ! The thumb looks pretty realistic too ! too bad about the funny color !

Cool . The hole looks like a witch to me, the big hat arm and dress.
