I got this Harley Davidson gas cap cover about 18 months ago to make a paperweight to sell at a Harley festival.
I didn’t get it done before the show, so It’s been riding around in my craft show box.
I dug it out this afternoon and made this using a bowl blank I made up before Christmas.
Just a simple curve with a slight recess for the cover so it’s flush with the wood.
4 1/4 inches wide, 2 inches tall.
Indian dontknow wood (dunnage).
Sanded to 320, then 1 coat of 2# shellac immediately rubbed off with an old t-shirt, then polished with the Beall system.
Not counting the time to make the blank…from chucking on the lathe to taking it in the house was about 20 minutes.
