Elephant Ear Dish #439

Piece #439 – Guanacaste, Elephant¬†Ear Tree – 8″ by 1.5″ –¬†May, SOLD

 

This piece of wood came from Florida. A storm took it down in 2009. I got a lot of it! At the time I thought it was a nasty species. It is almost caustic. I have to take special precautions when I turn it. Now that is has dried out really well it has spectacular character. I only have a couple pieces left. I have made some nice pieces out of it through the years. I will be sorry when I use my last piece.
