Last year I made this. At the same time I glued up another blank, with veneer between segments.

Once it was true, I cut a tenon on each end and parted off the top.

I use a steady rest as much as possible when drilling.

My wood jaws got a lot of use on this project, putting in the center and ends, cleaning up each end and branding.

Poplar and walnut. 3 & 1/4” wide x 5 & 3/4” tall. Watco Danish Oil and carnuba wax buff.

I saw somewhere on the internet that White Diamond gets in walnut and won’t buff out. I could imagine Tripoli doing the same. Better safe than sorry. Any experienced opinions are appreciated.

All the in progress pics are my camera, but I couldn’t get decent pics of the final project. Cell phone pics aren’t much better, I think it looks better than the pics, but I am biased.
