Had a few hours to play in the shop today and I was yearning to turn, so I turned an urn. Oak from Will G’s giant white oak tree that fell down during the NJ Halloween 2011 snow storm. This is about 9” tall.

What a great piece of wood. If you looked for something like this you would not have found it. This piece is a really blessing and a treasure! Thanks for sharing!

Nice piece, all I got from that storm was a power outage for 4 days. I ‘m glad to see somebody got something beneficial out of it. What did you finish the urn with?

Wil and I (mostly Wil) processed that trunk with a 24” bar, and I made most of the cuts from one side, and then the other. It was just long enough to meet in the middle. We measured the tree at 40” diameter DBH and I personally counted 195 rings (very non-exacting), so we just rounded it to 200.
You’ll see what I did with my piece yesterday, and the two pieces of pheasantwood I got from Hawaii when you come over today. Yesterday was not a good day on the lathe…
