For some reason I didnt get notified I had replies, sorry. No, Its an aviation tape. I decided to talk about it more in depth in my latest video since I figured people were going to have some questions about it

I had cut the tree down probably 5 years ago and then it sat outside. I baked it in the oven for a while after I rough turned it

I always do a lot more sanding than I show in the videos, Its boring and no one really wants to see that part. When I was in aircraft maintenance school one of our projects was to sand a scratch the instructor put in an acrylic window with a knife. I know a thing or 2 about micromeshing and sanding which is probably why you cant see any sanding lines in this finished piece.

You in the sheetmetal shop??

I was in there for almost 20 years and the other out with the other services.

Back in 1994? (It might have been 93) I was the first one who was trained by the company and we did F-15 canopy's and F-16 later.  Came back and taught many others to use also.  Long process and hard to make sure there were no distortions in the canopy's tho.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Hi, I'm Arlin's proud wife! His brain trma & meds-give memory probs and has pain from injuries, but all is well materially & financially.
