Cut a Holly Tree yesterday and to my surprise it had 'spaltling' all through it, so I could not resist and mounted it on my lather to see what it looks like turned! Here is a picture of the outside - all I need to do is dry it before I complete the job!

This is a piece very similer to yours it was rough turned 4/5 yrs. ago and finished last week.
Its a pleasure to work with Holly but has to be dryed and looked after very carefully .
The second piece is a natural edged one all from the same piece got about ten pieces .


PS as usuall got it all wrong with pics. second one is first . :oops: :mrgreen:
