A simple cup of Cocobolo with 24K gold leaf inside. Lathezilla provided the rose engine work. The outside is finished with 30-40 coats of CA glue. Looks like glass. I did this in 4 sizes for a gallery display.

How do you finish with CA? I never heard of using that. It looks beautiful!

Interesting piece. I’ve done CA finishes on pens, but not on larger(non-lathe) projects. Could you elaborate on how you apply it?

I put the piece on a “deadman” to hold it for finishing. I then applied the CA with a wadded piece of toilet tissue. (do not use cotton cloth or cotton balls) Using super thin CA, make a swirling motion around the piece. One drop at a time. After 4-5 applications, wet sand with 400 0r 600 grits. dry well and do it again. Be sure to dry it well or you will be in for a surprise.
