Today’s submission is from Richard Pratchler with an interesting story to go with the turning.
I was out helping my brother combine this fall. I was combining around some burnt brush pile. When I picked this piece of wood up it jammed the feed auger of combine. I had to dig it out of the auger and was about to throw it back on the brush pile when I thought I could do something with it. So I saved it after it went through the fire. I believe it is a poplar root ball. It is 10 inches tall and 7 inches in diameter. It is finished with tung oil.
