Last year my neighbor offered me her old apple tree it had to go it was rotten, half of the inside was soft

The other half of this piece I could use, hopefully I can get more beker’s out of the tree.

Turned the outside shape on the lathe

Drilled a hole of 35 mm, and started to hollow it out by hand with a hook knife, took the work outside and spend a few hours on a beautiful beach.

Pwllcrochan you can only go there at low tide and you have to climb down a rope to get there, pretty steep!

And a lot of sanding

I finished the beker with warmed up tung oil.
