Sassafras bowl. 8″. Love the dark heartwood and the pronounced grain. Plus, it smells great while turning it!

Butternut Hickory Burl

Butternut Hickory Burl

A little scrap that I didn’t want to go to waste; more of a practice piece than anything else. With its uneven oblong shape and natural edge, definitely a knuckle-buster.

Small (4″) bowl or vase of Indiana cherry. Cherry darkens over time; this will take on a much deeper reddish hue as it ages.

Cherry

Cherry

Cherry 11″ plate. Wood from the crotch of a giant tree; the grain has been compressed, fractured, and tortured into crazy shimmery patterns. Someone said, “It looks like a crumpled piece of paper.” Gotta love God’s creativity.

8″ wide bowl of crazy spalted sycamore.

Cherry Chalice and Paten

Cherry Chalice and Paten

Altar service of cherry. The chalice is probably the most gnarly piece of wood I’ve turned—worm holes, cracks, tortured grain, altogether seemingly unusable; reclaimed from the firewood stack. However, just as we ourselves can be pretty ugly, God can reclaim us and use us for His glory. A fun project.
