This is a piece i just now finished. As you can see it has a lot of figure and even some splating. Where the splating is it was kinda punky but i thought it was two nice a piece of wood not to give it a shot. Not shore if i should of given it the finial but i did any way thanks for looking and all C&C more than welcome.
BTW the finial is holly dyed black using india ink then waxed and hand buffed. the reason it was hand buffed is it's a little under 1/16 at the smallest. Was afraid it would break if put on a buffing wheel.
