Woodturning: The Cherry Canary!

This piece was the product of a few days of staring at the woodpile and wondering which piece would fly onto the lathe and inspire me. In spite of the fact that nearly all of the sap wood was rotten and punky and insect-ridden, this piece of wild Maine black cherry eventually decided to sprout the most annoying wings ever sanded and then required a pedestal in order to sit upright. I’m fairly pleased that both the project and I came out of this one piece, respectively, without losing too many chunks of wood or knuckles. This is my 31st filmed project! Let me know what you think! A huge Thank You to those who helped out during my recovery the last few months. If you’d like to support what I do in the shop through my paypal (), I really appreciate it!
