locust vessel

One of my coworkers brought this piece of wood in. It sucked and I wanted to toss it but decided to take it on as a personal challenge. I filled the cracks an punky areas with thin CA and then filled the bigger holes with black epoxy. I let the rotten limb section develop as a big hole in the side. Besides I needed practice turning the inside so it's smooth a clean and what better way that to look through a hole a see how you are doing. It's about 5" tall and 3 3/4" wide.

Yep... a brave move. I don't want to look at how bad I'm doing on a project like that...

Nice piece. I can see a lamp base there....

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...

John,
Nice job, looks great. Those grungy, cracked, misfit pieces of wood turn out to be the most fun. I think it becomes sort of a quest to make something good come out of it. Usually when I am doing one of those besides the glue, it ends up flying off the lathe a couple of times. I then spend a few minutes on my hands and knees searching for all the pieces and then glue it back together and keep going.
