This Jug, or Ewer for those who are more sophisticated, has been turned from Golden Cyprus with brass and copper highlights. The base is Walnut. Wall thickness about 6mm. The handle, which is Jarrah, was cut roughly on the bandsaw and finished with drum sanders and anything else I could get my hands on. It is about 260mm high and was turned when the timber was green which is my preferred option.
