    Dyed maple HF

    Here's one more i just finished. I had turned it a couple months ago, and as it had them ugly dark stans on it i let it sit on the table trying to decide what i wanted to do to it. Well this is what i came up with. The finial was just a quick one as i want to add a carved one when i decide what i want.

    I like it! Sometimes black dye is a good fixer for stained or blemished wood.

    I'm with Ted. I like the finial as is. I'm impressed with what the dye looks like on that piece. I have never tried dye; it looks like I should.

    Enjoy,
