    Just a little HF

    Cut down a holly tree out in the woods about a month and a half ago. This is the first thing from that tree. Going to give it to a lady i'm building a addition for. 4 3/4 x 3 1/4. Not sure if needs a finial or not, or even what kind it should have if any. O well it was good to at least sneek a piece in any way.Click image for larger version.

    Really nice piece and well done. No finial. Maybe if it didn't have the flower.

    Good to see you got some lathe time, Steve. Very nicely done. I'm another "no" vote on the finial. The flower is the focal point, and I think a finial would only distract from or compete with it.
