At first it didn’t look round and I couldn’t figure out how you did it, but I see one side is just short.
I just got off my lathe. I had a glue up of walnut, red oak, and spalted maple. I turned a blank to insert a clock. I sanded it progressively to 600g then wax, then wipe on poly. I like the shine it gives.
