These were made from a root burl that was harvested 45 years ago. It was very dry. Turned hollowed and bleached. This piece was bleached 3 time to get it much lighter in color. Edges were burned with the torch. C & C welcome

Real nice Ron, beautifully turned and textured to keep the aged look about it.

Absolutely Stunning Ron. Is there no end to your talent.

Thank you for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The form of this vessel is really nice, and the live edge goes well with it. I have some box elder burl myself… I hope to make something this nice with it.
