Default Surf and Turf

Not to sure about the name but anyway here is the latest piece I have been making.

Well at last managed to get something off the lathe after two that exploded and then this one having three attempts at colouring, I finally ended up with something I liked.
The wood I believe is holly and quite plain and it stands 7" tall and 3" at the widest.

Holly is a very plain and little grain pattern that is why I colour all of it.

The last photo is one of those that exploded
