I don’t really do any carving but I couldn’t resist making one of these. It’s pretty beefy at 11” long and right at 16 ounces. I’m sure I’ll find lots of uses for it and if not it’ll look cool sitting on the workbench.

Came from a dying Red Bud that we cut down at my father in law’s. Unfotunately since I turned it so green it has checked quite a bit in the past few weeks. Affects the visual but shouldn’t affect performance. I guess I’ll just have to start using it and not worry about beating it up….

See my other projects for a bowl that I turned from this same tree. Next week I will post a few other projects that are Christmas presents; can’t divulge those just yet…

Thanks for looking and thanks for all the comments.

Have your say...
