I never remember to take photos of anything until they are gone and it is too late. Anyway, this time I did. This was made from a branch of a cedar tree. I had never turned cedar before because it is so open and porous. Anyway, I tried a new to me finishing product - Osmo. It is an impressive finish. I applied it with a cheap throw away acid brush. It took 4 coats - one a day, to finally get the solid smooth finish into the pores of the wood. It is an impressive finish but quite pricey. I think it was $23 for a can the size of a small can of MinWax stain - a really tiny can. BTW, it really does shine.
