    Curly Vessel

    This is a recent piece done in curly maple and finished with Bush oil and Formby's Gloss tung oil finish. I don't usually have much luck with glossy but I spent some extra time and effort on this one so I could sent it to a friend on another forum for a secret santa exchange. I brought it in to the house where it's warm and put it under a plastic bin to keep the dust off.

    Sorry for the lousy photo.
