African Blackwood and Padauk, the candle stick/goblet waa turned complete with a 40mm straight 18mm diameter section in the middle, then parted off in the middle, The Padauk was then bored with a forstner bit and rounded, after that i mounted the base back in the chuck and added the padauk and top gluing the tenons inside the padauk with gorilla wood glue using the tailstock and large conical piece of wood to make sure the goblet was glued straight.
The next day I turned the padauk flush with the african blackwood, sanded from 120 to 400 grit and finished with..
2 coats sanding sealer
2 coats of own made abrasive paste
4 coats of chestnut woodwax 22.
The best quality work I have done so far ;) as you can see from slight dust inside the goblet I do need good dust management !
