Thanks for all the nice complements.
The wood was not green. I had the branch in my shop for years not knowing what I was going to do with it.
I used shelac as the finish. I just wiped it on with a small piece of cloth, turned the lathe on a high speed, and buffed the shelac dry. I call it the buff dry method.
