    Walnut Burl

    Small piece of Walnut burl I had in the shop got turned into this over the weekend. It ended up 4-1/2" tall and 4-1/4" wide. The collar is ebony. Antique oil is the finish. I'm open to suggestions and critiques.

    Hi Mark,
    Looks good, lovely wood.
    Did you turned the collar after glueing, or is the collar seperate turned and than glued.?
    It's a small treasure.!! very well done.

    Beautiful wood, love the form!

    I always have people trying to take the "lids" off when I glue them in, this happen to you too?

    Nice piece, thanks for showing it here!

    Beautiful form, wood, and collar Mark!

    The only suggestion I could offer would be where to send it!
