It’s a stunning piece. Sanding to a mirror finish, especially with those grooves, must be very challenging.

Amasing! Stunning! I can’t get my lathe tools to do the vertical grooves yet! (haha) Maybe you can do a blog on how to do that.

This is just so fine. I am also curious about your sanding technique.

Having followed your work over the past couple of years, this comes as no real surprise. Just the same your finishing methods are simply stunning. Really fine work, Joe!!!

Well, I’ll say this. Not only is it beautiful, it is beautifully done.

This one has a wonderful finish. Looks like you put more coats on than usual. It makes me smile just looking at it.
