This piece was a crotch in an apple limb, picture 2 shows another branch which is shooting off. So there are four pith areas here, if it is going to crack it has a fair chance. Turned to 1/4 thickness, 9 inches at it’s longest point, 2” tall. Tung Oil. When you look closely at picture 1 you can see the compression wood, that is mimicked all the way out to the bark

It is a beautiful piece of wood I sure hope it don’t split out on you don’t let it dry to fast seal it up…

Hopefully if you keep feeding it tung oil it will stabilize.

Beautiful work
