I discovered this little gem inside a piece of firewood one day while cooking on my smoker. I turned this with the easy wood tools. I started this several months ago but it wasn’t going as expected so I set it aside for a while. While having trouble with another piece a friend showed me how to use the round nose scraper (I am still a newbie) so I tried it on this piece and was finally able to finish. This item is very small but the wood looked so awesome that I had to do something with it besides burning it. I guess I could use it on my desk to hold paper clips. I am really happy with the way it came out. The curly stringy grain lines and the unfinished edges and inclusions are so cool looking . I think my favorite part is the bottom though. Well I hope you all enjoy the posting, feel free to leave a comment.
