    Maple vase

    Here is a maple vase I turned. This thing was cracking while I was turning it. I ended up with sanding dust and 5 minute epoxy. It held and turned out fairly decent. It has 2 coats of antique oil on it and will get one more then buffed after is has dried for a week or more. It is 6" tall by 5 1/2" across.

    Like that one Bernie, prefer the mat finish achieved with the oil, don't know if I would feel the same if it buffs up to shiny.

    Thanks all. Chas I don't plan to buff it to a sparkle. Mainly to smooth the finish and put a slight shine on it.

    Thanks again. When this thing started popping on the lathe I wasn't sure. It came out ok.
