so I took a bit of a break from my woodshop recently. I have just started to get back in there and figured it was time to finish this mahogany piece I started earlier this year. It’s about 6”x6” with a tung oil finish.

comments good, bad and otherwise are always accepted.

Very nice looking piece. I love the way segmented turnings turn out and the way the light reflects off the piece as you look at them at different angles. Very good job!! Thanks for posting

It doesn’t look like you developed any “rust” while you were away from the shop because the piece looks great! Nice work Darryl.

thank you everyone!
doordude: the inside is almost as smooth as the outside. the hollowing tool uses a scraping action so it’s fairly smooth inside, though i didn’t sand the inside of the vessel.

Nice to see you back.
That is a beautiful vessel.

Did you use pure tung oil or the varnish type?

it feels good to be back. I’ve got some new design ideas for the first time in several months… we’ll see what else I can come up with.

SASmith: I used the Minwax Tung Oil Finish
