Plum slightly differently

December 20, 2017

Plum trees tend to rot from the center from certain age so I decided to utilize the outer healthy wood. I have started making plum tubes. This one is 39 cm long and 11-12 cm in outer diameter. A diameter of 30 cm will be also possible. I have no experience in how this form is dried so I am trying various methods. We will see what happens. Surprisingly the longitudinal circular texture seems to be also interesting compared to radial and cross section (bowl) texture. If the drying process is successful, these pieces will be attractive parts for unique projects.
