It was hard to imagine what shape to make it to get the best from the swoop of sapwood. There is a crack that I was concerned about turning but I didn’t have any catches (whew!). I’m pleased with how this turned out.

You did a great job of accentuating the beauty of the wood. (And you’re lucky that crack didn’t get you!)

Nice job. Mulberry is a favorite of mine, I love the luster that appears when you apply the finish.
