...Yew. I had a biggish chunk left over sitting in my wood pile and an aged mother in need of a Christmas present. Turning Yew turns out to be interesting in the Chinese sense. But very characterful once I'd spent a very long time getting the tool marks out! 12.5" wide, 2.5" deep. I made matching candlesticks that need another coat of wax, no photos of those though.
