Unique shape. Nice work.
Chas that is a good looking piece. Nice form and finish.

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
Looks real nice, Chaz. I like the shape. Is the inside tapered to match the outside, or does it have straight walls?

I'm doing a piece of Lebanon Cedar that's in the shape of a spittoon. It's very aromatic, sort of medicinal. It's easy to work with but cracks easy. How long does the aromatic smell last? Does it eventually weaken after putting a finish over?
There is still a faint trace of the aroma after sealing and application of soft wax, not strong but enough to be aware of it on your hands after handling.
It is rather prone to 'getting dirty' when sanding, I tend to seal well and let it harden before attempting final finishing
Chas, the piece I'm working on is about 230 mm high and the same in width. I have it sealed now for 2 wks. and will try to finish it this week end. Hopefully to post pics following week. The aroma does get to you after awhile. It even stays on the vacuum filter and the dust collector bag.
