I didn’t have any issues turning it…... as long as tools were sharp. The test came when I started finishing it. It’s a very open pore wood. Even after sanding sealer and several coats of spar varnish there were still depressions in the finish over the pores where the finish had soaked into the wood.

I ended up putting 7 or 8 coats of finish on it but I had planned on doing that anyway just in case whoever ended up with it wanted to drink out of it.

A fun and whimsical piece! How about a Teapot to match?

That’s a good idea. An idea I never considered.
