This is a urn I made for my Uncle after he passed away. My Aunt described how he wanted and then expected it to be ready in two Weeks! So I started with bone dry OLD log and it was like turning a piece of concrete. This is the only wood I have ever turned that actually threw Sparks and forced me to spend more time sharpening than turning. But the end results were well worth it. This was truly a labor of love and an honor to be asked to create.
-- look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's a big hunk of the bowl I was turning.
