Mountain Mahogany Hollow Form #1

This small hollow form is 3.5 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches high. It is made from a section of crotch wood from a dead Mountain Mahogany tree. The wood was found along the Salmon River in Idaho. The wood is incredibly hard and dense and polishes up like marble. This piece has several bark inclusions, some of which have left holes that run completely through the wall of the vessel. It also has numerous worm holes that have been cleared and filled with turquoise inlay. It is finished with pure tung oil.
