This is a hollow form I made for my wife on our 35th anniversary. It is Walnut (my favorite wood to turn) approx. 6 1/2”w x 2 3/4” h. I don’t normally sand so high but found some 400, 600, 1500 grit in my drawer so thought I’d see what it would look like. Doesn’t matter if I liked it, SWMBO does, so no more of a finish after sanding. Just buffed it, as you can see it shined up real nice. It actually is two pieces glued. The board I cut it from was only 1 1/2” th. So I turned the bottom, made a 3/16 rabbet and turned a piece for the top with a matching rabbet. The first two pictures show it in an antique display case we happen to pick up at a recent tag sale.
