Here is some more oak...this one has a ebonized rim and I left the wings square. It's about 10" from tip to tip. I roughed up the rim with a dremel tool while the lathe was running to give it some texture. I then oiled everything but the rim. After that I used my mixture of steel wool and vinegar to turn the rim black, let it dry and then oiled the whole thing again. The third pic is of another little friend that didn't survive much after I took the pic. BTW, I apologize for the poor pics lately...I can't find out camera!
