Big Leaf Maple
About 4" tall
The only finish on this is the 50/50 oil I use for sanding
I was just about finished sanding the bottom. I turned off the lathe to wipr the residue before moving on to the next grit when I heard a cracking sound. I knew it wasn't good. I finished up and took the piece off the lathe and found that right by the lip there was a crack.
I like the shape, I think I might try this again.
