These are a few burl caps that I have finished recently, No. 1, 2, 3. & 6 are Eucalyptus “Gimlet”, No. 4 is Salmon Gum, and No.5 is Old Jarrah.

They are all sanded to 400 and finished with Krylon Clear Varnish.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
C & C Welcome as usual.

It’s been good getting these finished, as they have been happening for a while now. And also my fingers are back to normal.

Cheers,
Bob.

They are all great Bob, you are certainly getting a terrific finish on them. Well worth the effort you must have put into them, really nice grain on the “Gimlet” ones, thanks for showing.
