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.
