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.

Thanks for all your kind comments.
