Made this from spalted Coral Tree wood. Also known as the “Flame Tree”, it is the offical city tree of Los Angeles. Mostly ornamental, its showy, red flowers bloom before the leaves appear. When I first turned this, the wood was very wet, fibrous, and monotonously white, and it smelled like pumpkin. But I set it out to dry and it took on some nice color from the elements. Finish is General’s Woodturners Finish.
