Oh my gosh, that is gorgeous!  The wood is beautiful! I've never used a matt finish.  Why did you choose matt over satin or gloss?

Thank you Big Dave and Bill.....Bill I just said Mat finish it's the same as satin in my old school mind: I thought Gloss would make the piece look to new and would also be harder to photograph as well.

finding pommele sapele lumber is pretty tough. Only once have I had the opportunity. I'd be hesitant to use it in turnings. You put it to good effect.

Thank you Turner, Steve and Frank ....Steve I had a really nice supply sorry to say I'm down to just a few pieces that will be segmented only. I wish you could pick up all that beauty that falls to the floor in dust & chips and make a board from it.

Thank you Eight Fingers ....No Build along on this piece This one was started and stopped so many times some of the rings were made in 2018 and sat till 2019 until I put them together then some turning and it sat until 2020 when I pushed to finish the piece.
