    Tulipwood and Blackwood

    Thought I would try a bit taller pedestal on this one for a change. Sure made things interesting!

    Tulipwood and Blackwood. Around 8-1/2" tall, sanded to 800. The HF is finished with Seal-A-Cell and buffified.

    Comments and critiques welcome.

    You turned it too thin, I can't see it.

    Perhaps you were a bit too enthusiastic with the sanding on this one

    Neal,

    That's beautiful. You said you used Seal-A-Cell on the tulipwood, and "Buffified" it. You got a real Buffifier? Where did you find that? I want one too.

    What compound/s did you use? Or did you just dry buff that?

    Seriously, That is one impressive piece of craftsmanship and beautiful wood.

    I have yet to try any hollow forms. I'm having enough trouble getting bowls turned yet, and small ones at that. I'm gonna have to try one someday. Who knows, maybe something like this one.

    Aloha, Tony

    Sweet. I love these forms. Must confess I drift back to Cindy Drozhda's site every now and then for inspiration.

    The tulipwood is not what I have used, has it got another name?
