Hello Slotman, Beautiful Wood and Beautiful Shape, I would have spent another five minutes trying to get rid of the tool marks on the inside, What finish did you use??

Cheers Antonio.

Lovely piece. I made a very similar one last week from spalted Beech. What’s the size?

The remaining tool marks were a result of lighting, or lack of when I was turning it. I turn outside & was trying to beat the dark. Gonna have to do something about that. It is 10” accross & it is just shellawax.
