This is the 2nd of two pieces of georgeous highly figured walnut that I picked up in Iowa on my last visit to the in-laws. It has been sitting in my garage for nearly a year while I figured out what to do with it. Finally, I gave in to temptation and decided that it was time to turn it... even if I couldn't do it justice.
I intentionally left the form "simple" so as not to distract from the beautiful figure of the wood.
8" in diameter, 3" tall. Finished with 2 coats Seal-a-Cell / 4 coats Arm-R-Seal, then hand rubbed with rottenstone.
Comments and critiques welcome.
Thanks for looking.
