Beautifuly figured burr oak harvested from a fallen oak tree in Kilmichael forest just along from my workshop.
I suppose this is technically a cross between a closed form and a hollow vessel. Turned to include the three natural voids and burned to give some contrast. Measuring 360mm x 140mm.

This piece has been treated with up to 5 coates of premier Danish Oil. Further applications are not usually necessary but will do no harm. Make sure the piece is dust free and apply the oil liberally with kitchen paper towel. Leave for five minutes and remove any excess with some dry paper towel. Allow to dry overnight. Repeat if necessary.
