Well this is a piece of wood a friend gave me. Not sure what it is. Looks a little like walnut, but i'm sure it's not. This stuff stinks when i turn it, and it's real stringy.Still needs some more lacquar,wax, and buff, but will get there. Sorry for the bad pics, but was to lazy to set up the tent. The piece is about 6 1/2 x 6 3/4 to top of finial. thanka as always, and all c&c welcome.
