Wood Turning

Caribbean Waves Spetraply Spinning Top

This is my first top I turned and it turned out great, the wood is Caribbean Waves Spectraply from Woodcraft, I really like the colors its 2 different shades of blue and a shade of white, I went through all my grits up to 600 with the Paste Wax and Mineral Oil mixture and came out great, also for future reference for people if you buy the wood it will somewhat stain your hands if you the Paste Wax and Mineral Oil mix, it made my hand look like I was a smurf LOL, and when turning it my arms got covered in dust and shaving so I really looked like a smurf LOL.
