That shows some major skill right there Herb . Great creation
Is it coated with urethane to bring out the grain like that?

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Looks great. That’s some pretty wild grain.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I started with shellac to seal it and sanded to 120grit, then mixed Minwax Acrylic 50-50 water, about 8-10 coats sanding to 400 g. between coats. Then carnuba paste wax,hand polished. for final.

I presented it to the WW club tonight, and all the guys approved it, so it is official now, they are pretty critical.
