Cocobolo

I made this vase this past spring. It was my biggest sale ever. Today I finished another, but it has still got lacquer drying. I used to not put lacquer on cocobolo, but I recently heard that it sticks ok. Kind of a risky project for a finish that may, or may not work. We'll see.

Very nice work Uppercut.
How did you make that? Was it turned first, then cut and carved?
I have used lacquer on cocobolo and not had any problem with it.

Really great.

Do you mind if I ask how much you got for it? I know that's a personal question so won't mind at all if you don't care to say.

Thanks,

Paul

That is very cool looking. I would be interested also in the procedure you used to make it.

Great work, but I think I have seen this before at a art show in St. Charles about a month or two ago... if so then we have met.

Jeff,
