This one has a nice feather across the top and another in the foot area. It has lots of spalt lines, a couple of knots and a few cracks which I left unfilled just for effect.
Spalted birch, 7 ½” diameter x 4 ½” high, sanded to 400 with 5 coats of wipe on/wipe off Minwax gloss poly. Plan on buffing it once the static problem lessens in my shop. Had a nasty shock jump from my left hand and hit the remote on/off switch as I was reaching to shut the lathe off while buffing. It actually caused my controller to go into an over current mode! Figure I will wait until the natural moisture content of the shop air rises back up a little closer to normal.
