Woodturning – An Unknown Crotch Log !!

In this video I turn an unidentified crotch log, which didn't smell extremely nice at all while turning it. As normal I didn't have much of a strategy to begin with however believed the was rather bland so added a bit of colour and texturing to the inside, it ended up a lot cooler than I believed it would.
If anybody's got any idea what the is let me know in the comments.
