I turned this recent vessel from red oak. I then stained it with a white oak stain, which I think came out attractive. I then used CA Glue for the finish. I heard about this precess and thought I would give it a shot. The pictures do not do it justice; it has a nice gloss finish that compliments the oak tones very nicely. I had to take the pics without a flash to cut back on the flash glare.
I am scratching my head on the dark lines between segments. I had no burn marks or pencil lines, but they showed up. They actually make it more interesting….maybe a little character?
Besides those dark lines I think it came out very nice. I am going to try that CA glue again in the future. The finish is shiny, deep and feel very durable.

Thanks for viewing.

I bet that is a durable finish! I like the whole piece. Nice curves!
