Finished the Holly wood planter. Started with rough cut,extremely warped boards and tried to make them presentable.

Looks great. That’s some pretty wild grain.

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

Turned out great. That was a really good project for the wood. I know I voted for a clock, don't hold it against me.

I had my doubts,and was ready to trash it up until I put the feet on it , then it stood out like I wanted. It just took a little refinement to make the contrast of the roughness come all together.
