This is a pencil cup I turned from a scrub oak that fell in a storm last year (not Sandy, the latest). Sorry for the photo quality – its all off my cell phone camera and the lighting was different. What I wanted to show was how dramatic the deformation of the cup was as it dried. I’ve had others that deformed less and split straight through. It might be that this one is pretty thin – 3/32 at the edge and fairly thin all through. That doesn’t make all that much sense to me but I’ve heard other turners say it can have that effect.
Thanks for looking,
