This is a maple burl hollow form. This was the first hollow form I ever made. It features a natural edge rim and unique design. For finish I used General Finishes High Preformance Polyurethane Semi Gloss Water Based Top Coat. I applied with a foam brush for the first coat. In between coats I sanded with 600 grit sandpaper, and than reapplied the finish. After 3 coats I called it done. I really like the stain semi gloss finish on this piece. The finish really brings out the figure in the wood as well as enhancing the woods natural colors.
