Nice progress. Yeah, Frank’s rings are fantastic.

I think if you added an inner bentwood layer(after the outside was built), then you could have your grain running end to end. I havn’t figured out the best way to do that yet.

Flemming, fine emery paper (up to 1200 grit), usually available in car spares shops should do the trick on the polishing. That and burnishing cream.

Hej Flemming,
Yes fine grid, and polish at the end.
120-240-360-600-1200 this is the tour I take on my knifes, if you go directly, you will have the scraches from the rough sandpaper still.
Here are a Danish link for this stuff:
Feel free to ask questions.

Thats a really fine project, and as usual, you show your wonderful spirit by carving the hole by hand.
Others would say this could not be done without a lathe, a drillpress, a grinder, a shop ventilation system, a carvers set of tools and so on… (I know such one…).
Best of thoughts,

Nicely done with minimal tool(s) Flemming and a very nice design too. Coincidentally, the design is somewhat reminiscent of a piece I am just completing and which I will be posting soon. I am always amazed at the carving that can be done with a simple knife in the right hands. keep up the good work.
