Many things that I would like to do in woodworking and the list does not get much shorter. Well at least this is 2 that I can cross off, the first is colouring and the second is to texture some of my turnings. Hopefully this will lead to better pieces in the future.
This is made from cherry and coloured using blue spirit stain which turned green when applied, it stands 4 1/4” tall

Excellent work, did you use a texture tool while on the lathe or did you do it by hand?
