Another day, another project. This a piece of Sycamore with a nice bluish green motif. I duplicated the shape from the spittoon (roughly) project a few days ago. This also has a lacquer finish which started out as a high gloss but was converted to an almost satin finish by rubbing down with progressively finer abrasive pads (Mirka). The inside was left with more gloss but the gloss on the outside was distracting on top of the colors. Also there is a band of black on the outside rim to break up where the color meets the natural rim.
