Spalted White Birch, dyed with Ritz Red Crimson, 9 ¼” diameter x 4 ½” high, sanded to 400 grit, 8 coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly. It will get buffed after waiting a week or so for the finish to cure.
I tried a number of different settings for the lights when taking the photos and they all produced significant glare…so, sorry about that – but it is really really glossy! The multiple cracks in the piece were left as is for effect!
