Here is my Woodturning!

I've been a turner off and on for years but have been doing it pretty steady for the last couple.

Below is an urn that I turned for a Nephew that passed not long ago. It's turned from a piece of Hickory I rescued from a firewood stack. This was a real challenge as Hickory is like turning concrete and I've never hollowed this big a vessel before. Also being for my Nephew it had to be close to perfect. It was an enjoyable, yet stressful and sometimes maddening, project.
