Default My latest creation

This is my latest creation. Oak and spruce finished with BLO & paint thinner and then 5-6 coats of spray shellac. I used a 9/64 drill bit for the entry holes, so lots and lots of sanding. The rings were 3/4" wide and about 1" thick. The final size is around 10x16.

Nicely done. I like the grain and the contrast.

Super job! I have to admire your dedication to sanding. I usually get frustrated with the tediousness of it.
