African Sumac natural edge hollow form *PIC*

>African Sumac natural edge hollow form finished with Danish oil and buffed with the Beall system.

African Sumac is one of my favorite turning woods. It is an ugly pink/gray after you finish turning it and turns a beautiful red/brown with exposer to sun light. The sap wood stays a light yellow color for great contrast between the sap and heart woods. And sometimes I get lucky and it has the nice burl figure in the sap wood like this piece.

Size: 11.25"D x 9.25"H.
