The bottom vessel is maple and the lid is as well, with a walnut finial on top. Its about 7” high, and 3” wide.
The base of the lid is darker because it was cutting through the end grain and small enough that i could only get a 1/4” gouge in there to smooth it, and didnt do a very good job. I now know that part of my turning needs practice. I need to get a technique for doing end grain well.
The lid just has some oil and wax on it, but the bottom has a few coats of spray laquer.
Any tips for cleaning up end grain on the lathe would be appreciated.
Thanks for looking
