Default Thuya Burl Ornament

Here is an ornament Rebecca made from half the block of thuya we purchased from Seth (rolandranch). Rebecca almost did not want to turn it, it was so pretty!

Half of the block is waiting to be turned after she finishes 2 more orders.

Apologies for the quick cell phone photo. Was tricky getting no glare and trying to capture the grain!

My brother-in-law's very elderly grandma try to purchase this one from us last weekend. Rebecca had to promise her an ornamnent from Bethlehem olivewood. I hope she has time to get to it before Christmas!

Very nice! Be careful ornaments are as slippery slope as pens are!

So are bottle stoppers. And bowls, vases, hollow forms, etc.
