Looks great! Did you have to stabilize the wood before turning?

An amazing piece of wood. Your turning certainly highlighted the features.

Lovely finish to a piece you picked off the ground. Hooray for the scavengers.

Thank you. I didn’t stabilize it to rough it out, but it did have significant tearout. It also developed a crack along one side of the endgrain so I ended up doing a CA finish.
