Very nice, and I really wanted to comment on the photography. The second shot (close-up) is really nice.

Do use a steel brush, of one of newer plastic abrasive bristle brushes remove the softer wood and give that nice ripple effect? That and the staining really make the spruce look good. Using the knot as a center for lid gives a natural, yet striking visual effect. Thank you for sharing.

Quite extraordinary results with a soft wood.

Your work is truely amazing. Love the colors. I looked back at your other works of art and loved them all. May I ask how long you have been turning and what lathe do you have? A lot of people would like to know what tools other woodworkers use.

Certainly a case of letting the timber do the talking, always fun to “play” with something different, nice job PeterM

Thank you all for the kind comments.
Bluepine38I used a normal steel brush.
paplouI have been turning for many years now – I really don’t know the exact time.The lathe this piece came from is made by “Gebrüder Gschwind” in the year of 1913. This company doesn’t exist any more – they gave up the business (as far as I know) in the 1950’s.Anyway – it is a real heavy machine and some years ago I gave it a new spindle with a M33-thread and new transmissionwheels. It really runs smooths and very quite.Beside this machine I own a Killinger 1000 from 1985 and a Scheppach 1200 from 1986.I need several machines, because I give turning lessons.

Very beautiful, especially in spruce. The stain and photography are excellent.
