Some friends cut down a massive tulip poplar this summer and I grabbed a couple of limbs to bring home. Not sure how long it had been sitting in their yard but I got it in July and threw it in the kiln. I got two pieces out and when I cut the corners off to make blanks I saw spalting, once I started turning I saw all the color. This is what it turned out to be. It has a few tool bruises and I had to fix a couple of cracks but I like it. Pics aren’t great but hope you can tell how pretty the wood is. Still needs to be buffed.
Measures 6 1/2” x 1 1/2”
