This is more from my alder stash...about 11 1/2 wide by 7 " tall. It's the biggest one I've done to date. Tried something a little different with the mock collar and beaded rim. This wood was pretty soft, and I finally gave up on trying to get crisp details with no tearout. The walls are not super thin (about 1/4") and there's a bit of visible tearout on the inside that I finally gave up on, but all in all I'm pretty happy with it.
The finish is more Antique Oil and spray Deft lacquer, wet sanded with 600 grit then buffed with the three wheel system, followed with Renaissance Wax. There were a few cracks that I filled with black epoxy putty, but it dried gray. A little touch-up with the extra-fine Sharpie, and it was ready for the Antique Oil.
