Since my buddy Joe hasn’t shown us anything colored lately I guess I have to step up to the plate. This is 5×3 and is a Ash crotch. Colors are black, red, orange followed by numerous coats of wipe on poly.

Beautiful bowl Terry. I hope you bring it to the January meeting so I can see it in person.

We need to pan a play day soon.

hap This is a water based stain. The gloss poly helps to pop the grain.

mesquite I have rough turned 3 of the 6 pieces. They are drying.

Joe This piece will be shipped tomorrow as it is a secret Santa gift. I am ready for a play day. Your place or mine? I have a line on more Hackberry if you are interested.

That’s a really beautiful piece. The shape and color choices really work well to bring it all together.

wow, your choices of your layers of stain really bring out the figure. Very nice.
