Great work with the dye. Do you paint it on then wipe when still wet. Nice work all round.

Wow joe this is outstanding !! This is what I like to see in a finish, looks like glass .
I feel when using colors or wood that has alot of color and or figure-d (woods) the gloss brings out the color and depth .
Don’t get me wrong I love satin and semi gloss also but they all have their place.

Great Job Joe!

Joe, once again…this is a beautiful piece…and appropriately named. Before reading RJs comments above I was thinking nearly the same thing. It seems particularly for your last handful of turnings, the that depth of finish has increased. It looks fantastic.

Thanks for posting it.
