maple?? - pinky - 11-15-2015

I think maple with an ebony finial. Sprayed lacquer. 8" wide x 6 1/2" tall.

Goodness that is very pretty with the two tone colors.
Also what kind of form is that?
The finial is the best I have seen too.

I would really hate to see your stash of wood.

Another job well done!

I've been wanting to try some spray lacquer on a natural edge burl bowl I just finished. Any tips? I have never used spray lacquer before, but was going to pick up some Deft. I love the finish on this piece.

do several very light coats until you get the finish you want and sand lightly with 400 gr paper. Then beal buff.

This was done with a Mohawk rattle can of pre-cat lacquer. As Mel said, several light coats. I very lightly sand with 1200 grit. Didn't buff this one. Wear a respirator.

Really pretty, and a very well-formed finial. Is this hollowed out or solid? Doesn't seem like there's much access to hollow it out unless you did it from the bottom.


Re: maple?? - pinky - 11-16-2015

Removed as much as I could from the top before gluing the finial on. Pretty heavy though.


Re: maple?? - jerickson - 11-16-2015

Thank you for the replies about the lacquer. Would 0000 steel wool be ok for between coats? Also, do I have to worry about melting the finish by buffing? I've done that with poly before.

Sorry to hijack the thread. I just really like this piece and want to copy!
