Winner! Hollow Vessel with Finial and Base

By Sonny Gibson at Tralia Turnings

Winning Category

This Hollow Vessel was power sanded to 600 grit. After sanding I applied 2 thick coats of medium CA glue to the Maple vessel. After shooting a light coat of accelerator the vessel was re-sanded to 600 grit. At this time I buffed the surface with VONAX with a white diamond buffing wheel made by BEAL BUFFING system. The ebony finial, collar, and base were sanded to 1500 grit and shot with a single coat of MINWAX gloss lacquer.

The piece is roughly 13 in in height and 8.5 in in total width.
