Timbers not suitable for firewood often become my favourite pieces. The knots that are too difficult to split can produce spectacular swirls and twists. These features frequently determine what can be turned for the wood. This Tasmanian blackwood has a knot running right through it, clean on one side and complex on the other. This has been very pleasing. Complimented with a cypress insert and lid. This product has been carefully finished in environmentally friendly natural oils and waxes.
