I turned this ring holder from a small piece of wood that’s been sitting on a shelf in my garage for the last 15 years. I wasn’t sure what the wood was going to be until I started turning it. I’ve never been able to turn as thin an edge as this so I’m really pleased with it.

Great colors, size, and shape. The edge being so thin really balances out the piece. Great job!

What type of wood is it? And what’s your finish?

The wood is an old piece of apple that a neighbor gave me about 15 years ago, its just been sitting on a shelf waiting for me to get out the lathe!

As far as the finish goes, I tried to do a CA finish but that didn’t work so I scrapped it back down and put some “magic sauce” that a friend gave me on it.
