bittersweet, wood

Here's a nicely-sized weed pot* of Bittersweet, the invasive vine that has taken hold along many roadsides in the northeast, and can be seen climbing all the way to the treetops. It's like the Kudzu of the north.

Come fall, many people are happy to harvest lengths of the vine, with its bright yellow and orange berries, to make wreaths. But few have seen the wood of a large, mature vine turned on a lathe into a vase. It makes a very attractive turning, and has been well received by customers.

This one was turned from a 5" diameter vine that was slowly killing its host tree. It is 10-3/4 inches tall, and 3-3/4 inches in diameter. After fine sanding, a finish of tung oil varnish was applied, which was then buffed with hard wax to a lustrous satin sheen.
