...so I can add more to it later! The pile of logs is getting out of hand, so I’ve got to get turning (or find more space).

Another Pencil Holder – this time for my office. Not sure what kind of wood, but I’m thinking it’s eucalyptus. This piece had lots of cracks and the big bark inclusion at the top (makes a nice card holder). It’s ~ 5” diameter x 4 1/4” high. Finished with multiple coats of General’s Woodturners Finish.

Thanks all!

Wiser1934 – When I moved to Southern California, I was told that I’d find no wood here. While there are fewer trees than back East, there seems to be more than enough to keep me busy. And a lot of it is amazingly beautiful…
