This started out as a turning project, until the tennon broke out of the chuck. Then, it was over to the router table with a bowl bit.

The woods are Walnut, Maple and Padauk. It was difficult to get all of the router and sanding dust out of the end grain sections of the maple. So, the ends of the maple has a little orange tint from the padauk.

Sanding everything to 400 grit. Finished with two coats of Danish Oil, then three coats of gloss poly.

Thanks for looking.
