this was a GREAT piece of paduack!! Multi colored…the most unusal I’ve ever seen…as I said RINGMASTER DONE…basically that means that I cuts rings at variouis angles, glue together and sand, and finish by hand…this piece is approx 8” at the widest point and stands 13” high..and is a very unusual piece…at this time there are 5 coats of brush finish on…sanded between each coat to attempt to fill the grain and 10 coats of spray finish and a rub and buff to come..enjoy…thanks for looking..the “ol fart ringmaster is getting a little better”!!!!...enjoy your comments… kineo

Beautiful piece, very unusual pattern…and a great use of it in the segments…excellent.

I really like that wood…..and how the grain is so colorful….its a nice one to turn…although its rough on the skin and lungs….

A great looking piece. Beautiful wood and a great technique.

You need to post some photos of the steps to do this.
