This is a small flared vase made from a chunk of cherry, I think. I was cutting crotches out of some trees that had been down for over 3 years and the owner picked up some some chunks and asked if they could be made into anything. This is the second one. The first one had a hole blow out of the punky wood and I’m trying to stabilize it to save it. I’ll see him at the meeting tonight and want to give him his “chunks” back.
The last picture is the original chunk. The surface was badly cracked and some of the cracks are still in it .
It ended up at 3 7/8” x 2” with 1/8” wall. It is finished with EEE and Shellawx
