Walnut glue up of a board that was highly figured but had a void that essentially cut it in half. I cut the wood and glued it up in a cross grain pattern and turned the cup.
The inlay is applied at the bench, then put back on the lathe to hold it in place and a ROS was used to smooth out the inlay and to remove scratches.
EEE fine grit wax was applied till shiny.
Paste wax applied 15 coats.
The diciest thing about this whole project was cutting the bottom off after the piece was finished.
I work from the back of the band saw where I can see the blade going into the wood. This helps keep it straight.
Thanks for looking.
