Hollow form vessel measuring approximately 4.75 inches wide by 6.5 inches tall turned from spalted hackberry. This piece will be raffled off tonight at the Central Illinois Woodturners meeting. It is part of the “Bring Back” piece. The “Bring Back” program is a way for our club to raise money and give it’s members a chance to own other members work. The winner of this piece will also receive a chunk of wood from me. They will in turn create something from the chunk of wood and bring it back for the next raffle.

I love the continuation idea. Eventually everyone – maybe – could become a link in the chain. Did you start this, or has it been going on for some time?

Very nice spalt pattern, I assume you called it Pig Pen cause it looks dirty? Job well done!

Thanks Paul, our club started this a couple of years ago. I was the first one and this is the first time I have won since the inception.

Erwin, it was named after Charlie Brown’s dirty friend, “Pig Pen.”

You done good on two levels.
1—- Great job on the turning
2—- You found a use for hackberry.

This is the first thing I’ve ever seen made out of hackberry. All I’ve ever seen hackberry do well was fall down.
Hmmm. Maybe I can do something with the next one that falls at the old place that flooded.

Have a good’un
