Segmented Hollow Vessel #2 - Finishing

With the carving complete, I applied a liberal coat of ebony stain over the entire piece.

The following day, I put the vessel back on the lathe to sand away some of the stain to contrast and highlight the carvings.

I've now applied a single coat of tung oil to the piece. I will add more coats over the next few days...

Wow, it's tranformation is coming along nicely. Love it. Can't wait to see the finished piece. Hope you and yours are well and always look forward to seein' you around the chatsy neighborhood.
