OK – this gets a little more unique in the new lineup of Manzanita turnings. I went for the egg, again completed with our Carter Hollow Roller system which allowed a great amount of control to keep the tool stable while reaching into this vessel.

I liked the brown / white in this the coloration was not as vivid as some of the pieces we’ve done but again entirely unique. The bark inclusions and other grains I left in the surface gave it some great texture.

I put this piece up for sale but I kinda wanna keep it – we’ll see. I can’t keep them all, this is a for profit adventure.

This is very nice and a great eye catcher.
