The first winged piece is “Bauhinnia”, next three are Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras, and the last one is Tasmanian Blackwood.
They are all sanded to 400 grit and sprayed with Krylon Clear Varnish. I haven’t figured a way to friction Polish these square and odd shapes, so out comes the spray can.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
C & C Welcome as usual.

Like these Bob, nice shapes and finish on all of them. I go along with the spray can when those corners are flying around. Sassafras always comes up well.

Hello there Bob,

I friction polished using an angle grinder, lambswool mop and ubeaut shellawax on the T&G Blackbutt table top I made.

No doubt if you get a mop from Supa Cheap Auto and a drill you may be able to achieve some thing similar.

Mind you nothing beats the convienence and results of a spray can at times.

Nice looking pieces you have there, I will have to go track down a supplier of Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras.
All I have are a few planks of Tassie Blackwood.

I am keen to give the Krylon Clear Varnish a run as well if it produces results as fine as yours.

Where are you getting your Krylon products from please?

I see they have camouflague paint as well !!

-- Regards Robert

Great collection Bob, this is a good example of using or making the most of the timber as it presents to you.

Beautiful, Bob! I love the square bowls and the one in the third image is my favorite, also. How deep/wide are they? Thanks for sharing.

Hi Candy,
The last two are approx. 6inch squares and the middle two are approx. 8inch squares.
No.3 is 1.5inches tall and the other 3 are 1inch tall.

Those turned out great Bob. I like the second one best. I agree with the spray can deal.
