New member here, after lurking for a while. I thought I’d post some projects I’ve been working on.
I took the handle off my espresso tamper and made a new one out of scrap claro walnut, maple, and padauk. Finished in dark walnut danish oil and carnauba wax. I actually added some cherry red TransTint to the danish oil to give a bit more red tone to the walnut, but I think I need to add a bunch more.
The holder is black walnut, finished in amber shellac toned with red and brown mahogany TransTint. It was my first attempt at face turning.
