I forget what the middle wood is, the rest is maple. Wood was from scraps.
Its about 5 inches in diameter and about 2 inches tall.
I burned 3 lines at the outside diameter using the friction of guitar string to burn it in.
Sanded to 320 and finished with OB Shine Juice (BLO + Shellac + Alcohol – 1-1-1 mix)

Well done, I like the shape. The “burn in” rings add to the overall project. OB Shine Juice? Sounds like you are like me – a Capt. Eddie fan :-)). Eddie lives about 5 minutes from me and he is as nice in person as he seems on all of his videos. Man is a natural born teacher.

Yes, since I found Capt Eddie on youtube I have been an avid fan, I can go to his youtube channel with almost any question and find a video that addresses it. Even with shipping to Canada I have bought some of the stuff he sells, namely the carbide cutters. Now that I figured it out I can make my own tools and all I need to buy from him are the carbide tips.
