I finally finished this segmented hollow vessel. It’s made of 144 pieces of Pine. I applied a blue finish followed by 15 coats of tung oil. The interior has 2 coats of Ebony stain and 2 coats of tung oil. I’m pretty happy with the results and want to try playing around with some more color.

Beautiful piece. The color really sets off the grain in the pine.

Great work on shape and style as well as finish color selection. I’m always impressed with bowls of this nature as its harder to turn the inside than you would think. I keep wide tops on my work.:-)

It ok to post more than one photo here.
