Glad to have my lathe back up and running, it seems strange as I knew by the sound how it was behaving but now the motor is so quiet.
Started out with a very uninteresting piece of wood and was going to use black stain to enhance the grain that is there but did not get the desired effect so went back to natural. I did find a split so repaired this using various woods and finished off with a finial to echo the repair but not sure i like it may just have to change it.
The problem is the wife likes it.
The main body is Field Maple the inserts are Walnut, Ironbark and African Blackwood. The finial is the same three kinds of wood with the addition of some American black walnut.
The finish is acrylic sander sealer topped with an acrylic satin top coat

That's not a problem, that's an automatic sawdust elimination credit.

Nice item Derek, first time I have seen field Maple turned too, did you buy it or get it from a fell?

This came from some trees that were felled less than 100ft away from my house there was a mix of Field maple, Oak and Ash and they even delivered it and carried it into my back garden :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's a great way to get rid of a crack, must remember that. Thanks
There are so many different ways to deal with cracks this is another. The one near the knot is left open the small one near the rim is filled with coffe and CA glue and the big crack is held with two walnut butterflies
