I had this blank for a while and it had dried out. Being Hickory it was very hard to turn the end grain. It is a lot easier to turn green. I need to get some of the stuff to seal the ends.
I decided to turn it leaving the full bark. It had a small knot of some kind on side. Hickory has an interesting pith area. This was a challenge with my cheap tools and Craftsman lathe. It was fun though.
