A lacewood cup with a few coats of French polish from Lee Valley, which took very well! Silky smooth… I really enjoyed turning lacewood, the pattern really is something else!

Thank you everyone! It was quite interesting, the softer growth of the lacewood turned to dust right away while the harder growth was all ribbon.
