    It may be good wood. A few pictures of the wood would help figure out if it's good for turning.

    Outstanding work making the blank. Very detailed work filling the voids, for sure!

    I will post some pictures when it's taken down. Hopefully soon! I've got bushes/shrubs/etc. to trim first so I'm good to go for their upcoming growing season. "Then" the Yoshino gets it's turn next. When you say pictures, what do you, as a turner, need to see to tell if it's something you would/could use? While you're at it, talk to me about the size that works? Otherwise, I'd just be "cutting" for my convenience and to facilitate the process.

    If you post a picture of the standing tree I can draw on it and suggest spots that may be particularly interesting then repost. Otherwise cut it into manageable size pieces and post some pictures of the cut ends. But keep in mind that there was ever storm damage to the tree the grain around where it healed would be particularly interesting and if there are any knots in the tree or where a branch connects to the trunk a lot of times there are some neat swirly grain patterns.

    Here are a few quick ones I took yesterday. The house you see in the one is a neighbor. 75 percent reduction cropped IMG_20200109_130851049.jpg 75 percent reduction IMG_20200109_131027947.jpg 75 percent reduction IMG_20200109_131102113.jpg

    That graft area may be pretty interesting as long as it's pretty solid. And the wood below it looks like a decent size. Most of the branches are probably to small but a few of the biggest branches may be big enough and have long enough straight sections to turn.

    The brush looks great in its new home with its older sibling. My friend is very happy with it.
