Just finished this about 5 minutes ago. It’s the first time (of several things actually) I’ve used Australian Myrtle Burl (small block) and I didn’t really have a clue as to what to do with it. It’s also a first using the new NOVA G3 chuck, MT Drill Chuck, Danish Oil, and Renaissance Wax at the end. (though I did use 8 coats of homemade shellac after the Danish oil and before the wax).
I messed up parting from the bottom which is why it’s a bit off kilter but I’m planning to put this into a bowl of rice to steady it and use as an incense holder.
I think the danish oil, shellac, and wax really brought out the color. It’s almost like parts of it are on fire.
