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.

Well that was cool.  Still I don't think I'll be running out to the store later today to buy one.  :)
