Here is another turning from the same tree as the last poplar vessel I posted. I Wanted to try something a little different on the finish on this one, since the last one soaked up so much poly. I applied one coat of lacquer, thinned out 50 percent, and then two coats of wipe on poly. It was still quite fuzzy, being poplar, but I gave it a lite sanding with 400 grit and rubbed in a generous amount paste wax. Took it to the buffer and out popped all that beautiful grain!
This bowl is about 15 inches across and 12 inches tall. Thanks for looking.
