This vessel is primarily made of mahogany. the feature ring is pine with mahogany veneer. I use 15 coats of tung oil for the finish on the exterior. The interior is finished with 2 coats of ebony stain and 2 coats of tung oil. the piece is aprox 6”x6”

this was a gift to a friend who had given me a generous amount of mahogany for free :)

thoughts?

Very nice piece. I especially like the feature ring. Simple and elegant. Goes very well with the mahogany. Can’t believe that’s pine. Great job!

That’s a really fine piece. The inlay on the pine is superb.

Beautiful Work! I really like the mahogany veneer in between the pine.

I have a question, if you don’t mind. How do you apply the ebony stain and tung oil to the inside of the vessel?

You did a great job on this Darryl. I know you are no stranger to segmented work and this vessel shows it. I love the contrast of the mahogany with the pine.

phil, i haven’t kept that close a watch on how long it takes to be honest. I’ve been working on them from the “for fun” perspective. i’m a little afraid to see how many hours actually goes into one!
