Hi all,

I turned this trophy made of cedar and bloodwood from a raffle.
It was challenging to get a stable piece with a very light wood like cedar used on the base.

The finish is a bit different that my regular lathe-based finish:
  • sand the piece to 600 grid
  • sanding sealer (2 coats)
  • alternating lacquer coats with wet sanding from 1000 to 12000 using micromesh & paint thinner
  • one coat of cleansing wax rubbed

Hope the winner will like it !

Great day

Beautiful work.
The grain is excellent and the finish is superb!
