Here is a surprise, a friend gave me this piece of trembling aspen a few months ago. I was not really interested in turning it because of the other aspen that I turned. Well, it was a real challenge. The wood was very soft and punky, it took a lot to stabilize it. Wouldn't you agree that it was worth it?
A few pictures from the inside.
I really like that branch.
The wood was so soft that I ended up with a really textured finish, it is pleasantly smooth and nice to touch.
A different angle.
I like the branch.
A side profile.
The texture really shows in the end grain.
Ready to be put on display.
