This is an end-grain turned piece of Alaskan Birch. Carved and then colored with aniline dyes: it’s similar to the process I used for this piece: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/35796. It was green turned to rough, allowed to dry for about a year, and then finish turned.
The foot, rim, and finial are American Walnut.
The vessel body is finished in 20 coats of glossy polyacrylic, the foot and cap are finished in simple walnut oil and buffed.
