This is a trial piece to see what chestnut looks like when turned.
We picked cherries at an orchard on Monday and there were a pile of chestnut trees on the burn pile and the owner said I could come back and cut some of the wood. I went there today and loaded up and turned this mushroom and roughed out 2 bowls that are drying in the chip barrel. It is all green wood.. I added 2 shots of the wood pile and look of the end of the logs in my car. It is similar to pistachio in grain and color. I threw in this last shot because this guy grafts his trees and likes to experiment. That is a tomato grafted onto a potato!!!!!!!! He is planning on teaching some kids in Colorado how to do this next year! People are sure interesting!!!!!!
