This is a sugar maple hollow form that is 8 inches high and 6 inches in diameter. Hollowed down to a thickness of just over 1/8”. I sand down to 400 grit paper and then applied three coats of 1/3 high gloss tung oil, 1/3 high gloss poly and 1/3 mineral spirits. This is applied while the piece is on the lathe. I then sand it with 600 grit paper and apply three coats of high gloss poly.

I love the finish and shape. I didn’t know that you could mix finishes together, I have a lot to learn for a ‘Old Man’. Great Job …............ Thanks for sharing!

So you mix those all together and then apply or apply one over the other, looks great, but I too have a lot to learn about the finish process. Nice Vase.

Very nice form … well done piece. For me anyway; the finish is just too shiney… I think it takes away from the nature beauty of the wood. But it is what you were after, so well done !
