If you would like to see the blog that details this project go here http://lumberjocks.com/jeffthewoodwacker/blog/8539. This is from a piece of honey locust that was cut in January of this year. The ends of the logs were sealed with paraffin and stored outside until I was ready to turn. I used a 50/50 lacquer/BLO finish followed by a couple of coats of Waterlox. Sanded between each finish coat with 800 grit sandpaper. I was able to keep the bark on the entire edge of the vessel and you can still see moss on the bark.
