This is a Jarrah burl that is twenty-three inches wide and the raised ring is 14.5”. Topping the ring is a band of copper with a mild green patina. Finished with a gloss poly that was waxed with steel wool to reduce the sheen, then buffed.

WOW!! – That is great. Well done.

I wonder how many times, if any, you got your hands or arms banged up on this project.

I had always heard that buffing on top of poly was not a good idea, but you proved that wrong. Perhaps the steel wool is was made it work.

Thanks for sharing.

Would love to see the bottom of this beauty…and to know how you held it on your lathe. Thank you.

Thanks for all your kind comments.

Toni, Nova powergrip jaws grabbing a spigot did just fine holding the unbalanced Jarrah slab.

Have your say...
