Look at the amazing natural color in this Rocky Mountain Juniper!

I've roughed out the inside of the vessel with my chainsaw

Then I tackled it with a burr and sanding drum

Off came the excess from the outside (and I was very cautious after my Black Locust Boo Boo posted below!)

The piece is now about 1" thick all around and I will thin it next

This is what the piece looks like now. Love the stylish profile. I've wrapped it in a dry towel and put it in a plastic bag to slow down the drying process before doing the finishing sanding.
