This is my latest turning. It was one of the first blocks of wood I bought when I got my lathe. But I don’t remember what kind of wood it was. So if anyone can tell me – I would greatly appreciate it!! I had someone tell me it might be maple?
Anyway, it is about 5” across by apprx 3” high. I have never turned anything with cracks in it before. It was a fun challenge. I am very happy with the way it turned out.
I wet sanded it with shellac. And then 3 coats of 50% wax free poly w/ 50% mineral spirits and then 2 coats of 100% poly to finish it off.
Any comments and/or suggestions greatly appreciated!
