Variations on a Plum

2015-03-01 16.35.52I had someone give me a pretty gnarly looking piece of plum. Since most fruit wood looks amazingly beautiful I had to give it a turn. To the left is the raw material. There was a lot of cracking and checking in the log but that’s just part of the challenge. I was able to get two small pieces with minimum cracks and took them in different directions but still just lidded boxes in the end. I was right the wood has beautiful character.
