But first, what is cholla wood?

A type of driftwood, cholla wood is the inner skeleton of a specific type of cactus plant.

When the plant dies, after its outer layer has dissipated, its gorgeous inner wood is revealed.

Often used in aquariums and terrariums, when combined with resin, cholla wood is also a fantastic wood for woodturners!

Watch as cactus and resin are woodturned into a stunning glow-in-the-dark sphere!
