    HF on a stick?

    Not sure what else to call this. It's maple burl with walnut finial ,base, and collar. Aprox 8 1/2x 5. Finish is Blo, shellac, and right now just 1 coat lacquar. Will add more lacquar,knock down with steel wool, wax, and buff. Thanks for looking and as always C&C welcome.

    That's really neat, Steve. Is the bottom piece attached or does the HF just rest on it?

    Stephen that is a beauty. The only thing I might have did different would be to dye the pedestal and finial black. I think that would have shown the HF better.

    Thanks all. Cynthia the base is perment. This piece gave me a few fits. I had to make the finial twice, and the base 3 times. wish i had used some holly and dyed it black, but i thought i'd try something different.
