I have the inside finished out and a coat of Osmo buffed on to it. Still to go is removing the tenon and shaping the base.E85DEC89-DE62-4053-9954-BE65AB2289FB.thumb.jpeg.857c1029f59fcdd89d92c70eb9e69178.jpegFCAB856C-DE2F-4F80-8DAD-BB1EF670619E.thumb.jpeg.62dafcc99710fe7d33ea1a619b3cd88d.jpegYou might notice the cracks filled in on the sides. Some were there before turning, one nasty one appeared between sanding the outside and turning the inside. Had to go back and fill that then scrape the glue ridges down with a card scraper the hit it again with 320 grit.

I couldn't imagine how I would manage of them.  But now cut down to a big square with centered grain and carefully dried....

Gary not sure how long you have been working on the craft but your work has always been nice and is getting better with each new piece! I really like this one. Great wood choice and I am digging the lip at the top

I’ll let you in on a little secret. It started out with a completely turned in rim. I couldn't get the cut under the rim clean without tearout and was deciding I didnt like the look of it anyway so when I got back from the symposium I cut the rim back so I could get the proper angle to shear the end grain inside. I didnt like a flat rim so I left just a little undercut and gave it the double beveled angle you see. 

Thanks for the compliments, means a lot from you folks!
