Fruit Bowl - American Poplar

Several years ago, our Wood Turners group, took a trip to a nearby Tree Farm, where the Owner was prepared to slab to our requirements several trees that he had recently felled.
The Tree farm was primarily used by a group of Rocking Horse Manufacturers, as a source for their raw materials.
I took my piece out of a 16" wide by 4" thick slab.
It was so wet that the water and sap virtually ran out as I lifted it up, to put in my Trunk.
It sat in my workshop for approximately 9 years.
Beautiful to turn, not hard on the Tools, but it did have some slight splitting a where I was undercutting the Top Edge, so on with the CA, but regrettably on such a light coloured Timber, the CA left a mark that I couldn't remove.
