I finished this cake stand turned from a solid piece of cottonwood today. This one and two others were custom ordered for a customer out in Georgia near Atlanta. The top diameter of it is 13" with a total height of 5" and a base diameter of 8". After being roughed out while still wet and green, it spent about a total of a month in my kiln turned down to about 80 degrees. I don't like drying soft woods like this any hotter. After it was sanded down I sealed the wood with walnut oil. After it was soaked in good I finished it out with a walnut oil and shellac mixture. Hope the photos attached this time.
