zebrawood "ashtray bowl"

I just finished this "ash tray bowl" (full story at http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/bowl-ash-tray-26809/). It has one coat of natural stain, 6 coats of shellac and 3 coats of satin-finish polyurethane. The bottom view shows the color raw off the lathe, then with the coat of natural stain just to show how it is that the zebrawood looks a bit better with a finish (well, yeah, most woods DO)

Very nice!

I definitely like it, but it takes some practice and the wood surface has to be REALLY flat to get an even burn. Be careful of soft woods in particular because it can burn so quickly that it traps very hot outgassing inside the burn area and chars the whole surface.

Nice job Paul.
Where did you get the glass ashtray? I think I may have to make one. Just got a new cigar catalog in the mail.

Mike, I just happened by a shelf of them at the local Walmart and thought of how you're always ragging me to make an ashtray bowl, so picked one up just for kicks. I actually did want a cigar ash tray but that was all they had.

As I said in the original post about this bowl, I checked them out online some time back and didn't have any trouble finding them, including cigar ashtrays.
