This started out to be a nice little confetti lamp until it dried… I had a nice chunk of eucalyptus gum that I had for about a year. It was covered in wax and I thought it was dry, I should have checked it with my moisture meter. I turned and finished all at once. I used Mylands friction polish and Carnauba wax as the finish. When I looked at it the next day this is what I had. The piece had shrunk and cracked. I am not sure that I want to give it to anyone but in my eyes I think that it still looks good. It is very unusual. Next time i will check the moisture content before turning.
