This is a cherry and lacewood hollow form with turquoise inlay, aniline dyed with a wipe on poly finish it measures 5” tall 7” wide. The wood on this had a lot of defects but I couldn’t find myself throwing it out so I filled it the best I could. Sorry for the bad pictures. Someday I will learn how to do it right. Thanks for looking.

Lou

Looks good from here Lou. At first I thought the top was textured, but after reading your description I understand it is lace wood. For my taste; I think this piece is just a bit too shiney….however, that might be what you were after. The dye job is great.

A well done HF….........

Very nice. Do you ever find that the finish breaks between the different woods after time? Love the wood save, pictures are ok.

Lou, I think its stunning, I am a fan of the super slick finishes…. done one or two and appreciate how tough it can be! I prefer the naturaal colors for inlace on woods, but hey, thats why there are “Whoppers” AND “Big Macs” right? Personal tastes.
Nice job! If it needs a home I can give you my address! haha

Wow, that came out just beautiful! I love everything you did with it.
What is your secret to getting such a great gloss with the wipe-on poly? Mine never looked this good.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. They are well appreciated. Hacksaw this is m first time with two different woods so I’ll just have to wait and see. Mary Anne I use high gloss & it takes a lot of coats. Thanks again. Lou

Pretty cool to bring the beauty out in the wood and create a joyful piece. It’s a happy little beauty. No, have not been drinking, just puts a smile on my face. Nice one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
