This was a third and a quickie. It took about an hour to turn from a rough chunk of wood to ready to polish.
Blank I cut from an oak log found along the road. Sanded to 400 then coat of shellac, then sanded again 150, 220, 400 before using Danish Oil (3 coats), then 4 more coats of shellac (I use the superblonde flakes). Then since it arrived yesterday, I used the Beale Wood Buff wheels to finish it off and wow, it’s much shinier in real life.
My friend at work saw the little Myrtle Burl thing I made and really liked it so she asked if I could make her something so I said ok. She likes to have a flower (usually just a silk one) at her desk so I turned this little vase It’s about 6.5 in.
Thanks for looking
