This was turned from a cap I sliced of the trunk from my burl score. Hind sight should have cut deeper into the trunk to get some solid strait grain for a more solid mount. Looked at this piece for weeks before I figured out how I was going to mount it. Cool to watch the tool cutting on the inside through the openings on the sides. Would have liked to hollow out the inside a bit more but felt it starting to get unstable. Rough turned 3-10 finish 12-10 tung BLO mix & wipe on poly. 7" & 3 1/2"
