Cherry Branch Burl - turned when about 1/2 dry. Was changing shape and making popping noises whilst it was spinning on the lathe. Taped it with duct tape when it was scraped down to final thickness on the inside.
'Interesting' one to turn as it was turned kinda between side and end grain - has a branch pith on two sides and bark in various places still on it.
It continues to warp and change shape - it may or may not stay together, kinda fun to see mother nature get the last word in...
5 '' h x 4 3/8 w x ~ 5/16s thick - three coats Tung oil, buffed, waxed
