Natural Edge Turning

There is something kinda special about turnings that have bark on the edges.  Of course some natural edge turnings have the bark removed leaving the wood bare.  Both are attractive and certainly have a rustic appeal to them.  Another thing about this kind of turning is they have been nicknamed "knuckle scrapers".  Due to the uneven edges and the bark, it is not unusual for a turner to lose a little bit of hide while sanding one of these.  Especially figgering it might be spinning at about 1000 or more rpm's.  Makes no difference.  Enjoy!
