Hickory vase

Turned this vase from Hickory,wet wood. It is 11" high and has multiple coats of polyurethane on to prevent cracks etc. I don't wait for wood to dry. Always seal it immediately after turning it. If can't finish turning in one day, I still seal it then finish turning. Works for me. Mitch

Great! I was wondering what hickory looked like. I have a hickory tree that didn't come back this year and I was thinking today of all the things I could turn with it after I take it down. Not to mentition the meats I can smoke. It's sad when one of your favorite trees die, but it won't go to waist.

Thanks Coffeetime. I always hear that hickory is hard to turn due to the fact it is soo hard,but I haven't had that experience when turning it. It's hard but with sharp tools it cuts so clean.There seems to be so many different color patterns too. Great wood. Mitch

Nice. I like the way you got such symmetry with the grain pattern. Beautiful color too.
