Started this from a splitting, cracking piece of firewood and it was difficult for me to finish, but it did get done. NOT real wet, not real dry... just difficult. Cracks were filled with black epoxy.
4 1/2 high, ~ 4 1/4 at the widest. BLO, shellac, more BLO. amber shellac to try to get some color into it, a few coats of DO. Sanded back down some, BLO, shellac, sanded and a couple light coats of acrylic spray, then dried, sanded and hit with EEE on the wheel. No wax
Thanks for looking,
