WEDNESDAY'S WOOD

An oak  vase is being born on the  lathe. 
 It was very dry but with lots of sanding 
and then oils, it is responding beautifully!
There is plenty of spalting on the other side; 
 these are not cracks but water that had seeped in and left its scarring on the chunk of wood--being brought out with finishes gives it beauty and it's not damage anymore!
I drilled a larger hole in the center of this vase--
I wanted to try something different.  
This one will hold water when I paint the inside with epoxy
 once it is off the lathe. 

This is how it started out! 
 Just a chunk of wood....it's been a wonderful journey!
