    Oak HF

    This is some Gambel Oak from the foothills around here. Turned from a small log with the pith down the center. It had some wierd dark stuff in the center of the log. The finial is walnut ebonized with black ink and then partially sanded off. It's about 5" x 9".

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Great looking Gambel Oak HF!
    I really like what you turned for the finial.
    Well done!
