Mexican pot

This is a large Mexican style pot that I turned from sugar maple. You can see the blog where I describe the turning process by going here: http://lumberjocks.com/jeffthewoodwacker/blog/17008. The tree was taken down last fall and I cut it up into blocks a little over three months ago. From one quarter section of this tree I will get 4-6 turned pieces. Finish on this piece is a mixture of 1/3 high gloss tung oil, 1/3 high gloss poly and 1/3 mineral spirits.

Don’t tell anyone you shared your Mexican pot with everyone on Lumberjocks. :-)

It is gorgeous, though.

Thanks for sharing!
